Inro (1865) | Victoria and Albert Museum, London • Zeshin Shibata. Gold, silver, gold laquer and pearl-shell.  From the late 1500s Japanese men used the inro because traditional garments (the kimono) had no pockets. The inro was suspended from their sash by a silk cord and a netsuke (toggle). They originally used it to hold their seal and ink or a supply of medicines.
