The Nippon Gallery at The Nippon Club
Japanese men of Edo and Meiji periods were incredibly fashionable. Townsmen collected and enjoyed their personal accessories, and samurai decorated their precious swords with metal and/or lacquer fittings. The Nippon Gallery shows beautiful miniature sculptures from Eugene and Susan Tosk’s personal collection: Netsuke, functional small cases of Inro (compartmented medicine or sealed case) or pouches and other paraphernalia to smoking sets which adorned their sashes. This exhibition demonstrates personal items for men with wit and taste, showing Japanese tradition and culture.
