Japanese lacquerware is a tradition that dates back to 5000 BC, during the Jomon period of Japanese prehistory. Made from the toxic sap of the Japanese lacquer tree (native to China and India), the specific lacquer can be found on pictures, decorative pieces like Buddha statues, bento boxes, ceramics, furniture, a variety of prints, and more.
