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.
