Netsuke were attached by a chord to the Ojime which loosened and tightened the chord above the compartmentalized Inro. The chord on which the Inro hung ran under the kimono Obi (belt) secured in place by the Netsuke positioned over its stiff fabric edge.. This acted as a secure device to prevent the Inro from detaching from its owner.)
