Present-day Iran and Japan were known to have had direct trade links since at least the 7th century, but new testing on a piece of wood — first discovered in the ’60s — suggest broader ties, the researchers said.

This is the very first time a man as far away as Persia was understood to have worked in Japan,” he said Although earlier studies have indicated there were exchanges with Persia as early as the 7th century.

“And this implies Nara was a cosmopolitan city where foreigners were handled equally.”

Nara was the capital of Japan known as Heijokyo from around 710 to around 784 before it was transferred to Kyoto and after to present day Tokyo.

The discovery comes after another team of research workers last month unearthed early Roman coins in Okinawa Prefecture at the ruins of an old fortress.

It was the first time from where they were probably minted coins from the powerful empire have been found in Japan, thousands of kilometers.
