It is said that glass came to Japan during the Yayoi period (300 BC – 250 AD). It is used as a simple vessel or container in everyday life today, but in the overall history of Japan, glass was used as an ornament and was carefully handled as a symbol of prayer and treasure. The design, curves, and patterns of hand-carved Japanese glass, are striking and distinctive, and with its gentle warmth, continues to attract people with its appearance and feel.
