This elegant jar with its understated decoration, including vertical stripes polished into the red coating, is typical of jars thought to have been made for ritual rather than practical purposes. Most jars of the type are excavated from burial sites and seem to have been used in the burial rites. They are found only in northern Kyushu and western Honshu. This jar came from the Jonoharu site within the modern city of Fukuoka.
