Netsuke is a fastener used in the Edo period of Japan. It was used to carry cigarette cases, inro, purses, and small bags hung from the obi with a string. In Japan, the center of clothing gradually shifted from kimono to western clothes after the Meiji period, and opportunities to use them decreased.
As a result, in modern Japan, most of the excellent netsuke and inro from the Edo period to the Meiji period have flowed out of the country, and only a few excellent items remain in Japan. We are located in Japan. It's our pleasure to make you happy by proposing our recommend item. If you have any questions or request about items' please feel free to ask us.
