1 (p. 104):
This pottery has a lid and four handles attached to the rim. It has an unstable shape, with a 60 cm-diameter midsection and less than 10 cm at the bottom. It seems it was used by burying it in the floor or by passing rope through the handles and hanging it.

2 (p. 105):
This is a curiously shaped pot. Liquid will flow out of the spout before the pot is fully filled due to the lower position of the spout relative to the opening located on the upper rear area.

This pottery is painted with red lacquer mixed with cinnabar mercury. From this feature, it is considered to have been made in Tohoku and brought to Hokkaido.
