NETSUKE



Do you know how many Netsuke artists?
Do you know how many designing in netsuke?
What is Netsuke for? During Edo period, people wear Kimono with obi(same as belt). There is no
pocket on Kimono. They have Inro(which is medicine holder) with Netuske hanging from obi.
Netsuke works as a stopper from dropping down
by obi. So, people competed with others of designing.
That's why there are so many subjects of netsuke.
