The closely-guarded production methods for these mysterious "tombo-dama" (glass beads) was established before the Nara period, which began in 710 A.D. Then, it is said that in the Edo period (1603-1868 A.D.), with much trade arriving from China and Europe, glass-making techniques from abroad influenced the technique and the production of "tombo-dama" became even more varied.
