    Lacquer cup stands in plain black and red were brought to Japan along with the practice of drinking tea in order to sustain health and observe long periods of meditation in Zen monasteries, probably by Eisai (1141-1215), who promoted both tea drinking and Zen in Japan. He founded Kennin-ji, the temple in Kyoto, and a special ceremony that re-creates the original style of tea service practiced during the Muromachi Period is observed and celebrated today on the anniversary of his birth.
