This jar was excavated from a box-style stone coffin in Daishogunyama Tumulus on Tsushima, the Japanese island closest to the Korean peninsula. Its round body was created by lightly beating the outer surface of the bottom part with a beating board. Judging by the patterns made by the board and the shapes of the handles, this jar may have been created on the Korean peninsula and later brought to the island of Tsushima. It dates from the 4th-5th century CE. (Tokyo National Museum)
