Hard to photo but easy to see with loupe or optivisor, the striped cane in the Chinese finial bead.

The smaller Japanese beads seem to display different, monochrome crumbs [olive and spring green?] and a brighter polish compared to the slight orange peel texture in the Chinese bead.

Presumably the Japanese beads date to at least 20 years later than the Chinese?
