Stone Ritual Clogs, Excavated at Noge Otsuka Tumulus, Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, Kofun period, 5th century (Important Cultural Property, on exhibit through November 25, 2018)

After the 4th century, treasured articles made of stone, such as jasper and green tu, were created. The production of these articles was initiated
by the Yamato Kingdom based in the Kinai region, where Nara and Kyoto are located today, with the assistance of chiefs from the Hokuriku region, which lies to the north along the Japan Sea. Initially, these articles were created mainly in the shapes of bracelets, vessels, and weapons, but a wider variety of steatite objects began to be created from the end of the 4th century.
