[Trivia]

It is said that glass came to Japan during the Yayoi period. (c. 300 BCE-300 CE) Currently it is also used as a vessel in daily life, but in the history of Japan glass was for example used as an ornament and it was carefully handled as a symbol of prayer and treasure. The design of Japanese glass, which has a strong character as an ornament, is partically stricking and the beautiful shape of the curves and delicate pattern carved by hand are distinctive. Japanese glass with its gentle warmth continues to attract a lot of people with not only its appearance but also its touch.
