At the same time, the three ancient country of Silla, Koguryo, and Baekjae had generally effected on Japanese culture and life as well as Buddhist events, religious services and sacrificial offerings in form. And even now there are kept above one thousand of tablewares which was used at the age and was made of wood and alloy manufactures from Han peninsular in Seisoin at Nara. Through these historical backgrounds, it could be presumed that the religious services and the sacrificial offerings for Prince Shodoku for above 1300 years help us to study and estimate the ancient dietary culture of Korean and Japanese. There are several points of similarities which are remained and maintained in Han Peninsular. 1. They used high filling method of the secrificial offerings and high receptacles in the religious service. 2. The cakes were mainly made of nonglutinous rice tharr glutinous rice 3.
