An inrō ( ) is a traditional Japanese case for holding small objects, suspended from the obi. Description Because traditional Japanese garb lacked pockets, objects were often carried by hanging them from the obi, or sash, in containers known as sagemono (a Japanese generic term for a hanging object attached to a sash). Most sagemono were created for specialized contents, such as tobacco, pipes, writing brush and ink, but the type known as inrō was suitable for carrying anything small.
Consisting of a stack of tiny, nested boxes, inrō were most commonly used to carry identity seals and medicine. The stack of boxes is held together by a cord that is laced through cord runners down one side, under the bottom, and up the opposite side. The ends of the cord are secured to a netsuke, a kind of toggle that is passed between the sash and pants and then hooked over the top of the sash to suspend the inrō. An ojime, or bead, is provided on the cords between the inrō and netsuke to hold the boxes together. This bead is slid down the two suspension cords to the top of the inrō to hold the stack together while the inrō is worn, and slid up to the netsuke when the boxes need to be unstacked to access their contents. Inrō were made of a variety of materials, including wood, ivory, bone, and lacquer. Lacquer was also used to decorate inro made of other materials.
This Inro is made from carved wood. It shows five monkeys climbing trees. Two netsuke are attached, one shows a monkey mother with her baby and the other is a young monkey.
This inro represents a man called Chokaro. He is one of eight Chinese immortals. Chokaro has a magical horse that sleeps inside the gourd he carries. When Chokaro needs to go somewhere he blows into the gourd and his horse appears. The story of Chokaro and his magical horse may explain the Japanese proverb a horse from a gourd which means that the most unexpected things can happen. The gourd is a symbol of good luck, rebirth and immortality.

Inrō with Design of Cricket Onko Takanaga 19th century
Inrô: Figures in a landscaped garden, 18th century Red lacquer Lacquer is the refined sap of a deciduous tree of the sumac family. Applied in extremely thin layers in order to allow time for hardening, a single piece requires the application of numerous base layers before surface decoration is carved or applied. When exposed to oxygen and humidity, the lacquer hardens or polymerizes. It is used to seal and preserve porous surfaces of various materials, usually wood, Pigments can be added during the layered application process, allowing darker colors to emerge as the carver cuts through the top layer, in this case red.

Seven Gods of Good Luck From left to right: Soldan Sağa Hotei, Juroujin, Fukurokuju, Bishamonten, Benzaiten, Daikokuten, Ebisu The Seven Gods of Fortune (Shichi Fukujin), refer to the seven gods of good fortune in Japanese mythology and folklore. They are often the subject of netsuke carvings and other representations. Many figures in Japanese myth were transmitted from China (some having entered China from India), including all of the Seven Lucky Gods except Ebisu. Another god, Kichijōten, goddess of happiness, is sometimes found depicted along with the seven traditional gods, replacing Jurōjin, the reasoning being that Jurōjin and Fukurokuju were originally manifestations of the same Taoist deity, the Southern Star. However, as is often the case in folklore, Japanese gods sometimes represent different things in different places.

Inro with decoration of Portuguese figures, 19th century Wood with black and gold lacquer H.

About Kajikawa Bunryusai (maker) Black, gold, silver and red lacquer inlaid with gold foil Metal beads, lacquered wood netsuke Lacquer was most commonly used in the manufacture of inro since it was highly suitable for storing medicines. Lacquer is the sap from the tree Rhus verniciflua that grows mainly in East Asia. After processing, it is applied in many thin layers to a base material. The craft of lacquering, as well as making inro bodies, is highly complex, time-consuming and expensive. This example is decorated with a courtiers hat and cherry blossom in gold, silver and black takamakie (high sprinkled picture) lacquer. Makie is the most characteristic of Japanese lacquer techniques. It is a generic term for a number of related techniques. They all make use of gold, silver or coloured powders that are sprinkled on to wet lacquer before it hardens. From the 1700s onwards, many artists signed the inro they made. This example is signed kanko (official craftsman) Kajikawa Bunryusai. The Kajikawa were one of the main lacquer families who specialised in making inro. Although the third Kajikawa master was called Bunryusai, the use of this name on a number of inro refers to the work of one or two lacquer artists who were active from around the mid- eighteenth to mid-nineteenth centuries. They can be differentiated as Bunryusai II and III. This inro was probably made by Bunryusai II.

Inro with Monkeys in Human Guises About Black, gold, red and brown lacquer The inro is a container made up of tiers. Most inro are rectangular with gently curving sides. Makers used a great variety of decorative styles and layout. On this example, the maker has spread the decoration over the entire body. As a result, the inro often cuts the decoration at unusual or unexpected places. This design shows 115 monkeys, many of which are dressed like human beings and engaged in human activities. It is a remarkable achievement given the small scale of the decoration and the use of the makie (sprinkled picture) technique. This involves sprinkling gold, red and brown powders on to a prepared lacquer surface to create the design. Victoria and Albert Museum
