Japanese inrō are small lacquer boxes of nested trays, worn by gentlemen at the waist, suspended from their sash, and containing sundry medicines. Their exquisite manufacture and decoration, with the attached netsuke and ojimi, have made them highly prized by collectors. Perhaps the most impressive of this series of books, this volume contains over 100 inrō and other lacquer objects, complemented by descriptions, translations, and notes.
