    I almost bought a very similar one back when I had money. Love the design: a Shojo sleeping off too much rice wine.

    "Netsuke" is a small object carved in wood or ivory, or carved in metal, and pierced by holes, used by the Japanese as an ornament to hold a small purse or bag to the range of the kimono.

Good catch These are old life miscellaneous goods of Japan, and it is said, "NETSUKE". There was a hole that passed the string behind, and it used it to fasten the bag etc. that put small articles in the belt. It is the one of the key ring and the strap said now, and there are a lot of collectors in a absorbed design, too.
