Although lacquer was used for simple items and decorations as far back as the Jomon Period, the making of quality lacquerware in Japan dates from the early 7th century when the technique arrived from China, along with Buddhism, and has since been a revered traditional craft and art form in Japan.

Examples range from simple tableware, to utilitarian items of every sort, to refined art and religious pieces; including plates, chargers, boxes, candlesticks, stands, tables, furniture, lanterns, teapot, and sake bottles; often decorated with gold and a palette of bright colors.
