Bought this "box" over 10 years ago when I was in Fukushima, Japan.
Interesting box, but I have no idea what it's purpose is.
The box is all wood ( light and dark) with a light string attached from both sides of the box and lid... the strings exiting the center of the lid.
Nice patina !
Measurements are 5" high x 6" wide slightly grading narrower towards the top.
As you can see the inside is very narrow ....... perhaps for cigarettes? !
Are there any Japanese Connoisseurs out there who could tell me a little bit more about this box?
Once again, Thanks to every one who can help me and who has helped me in the past.
