Japanese art can be traced all the way back to the tenth millennium B.C. Its continual absorption, adaption, and diversions from outside influencing and conquering cultures make Japanese art distinctive. Japanese painting originated from the influence of Buddhist Chinese, while Koreans pioneered bronze work. Japanese art history timeline is marked by continual assimilation and refusal of Westerners missionary oil paintings technique. While religion has impacted most of Japanese art history, the most significant artwork is secular art, such as theater, bronze work, woodblock & woodcut printing, clothing, poetry, masks, and accessories.

Katsushika Hokusai's (1760-1849) painting, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa '' is certainly one of Japan's most iconic works of art. It's not a coincidence that the popular woodblock print theme is nature's formidable power, and it also features the beautiful Mount Fuji. Similarly, the Japanese developed geometric patterned ceremony bells in the 2nd century A.D, after this century the art was perfected by creating bells having thinner walls. Bronze mirrors and candlesticks are really a great example of Japan's exquisite bronze craftsmanship. In Japan, another creative strength is known to be fashion, particularly the Japanese inro along with its accessories. Ojime, with its exquisite carvings and decorations, is a one-of-a-kind decorative antique collectible.
