A four-case inro in gold, grey, red and brown takamakie. Various objects associated with the samurai and horse-riding are scattered on top of a roiro and muro nashiji ground.
To the front, a kabuto in shades of gold is decorated with the Kuyo mon and a grey menpo lacquered to simulate iron. The maedate of the kabuto features a large dragon, whose claws, face and scales are all nicely detailed and well executed. Below the kabuto sits an ebira (quiver), the body of which is decorated in a textured brown lacquer to simulate hair or fur. A grey banner flutters to the bottom, decorated with Sasa-mon.
To the verso, a brilliant kura (saddle) is decorated with scrolling tendrils and nashiji. Beneath the saddle are stirrups and a yumi (bow).
The internal compartments are lacquered in nashiji and gold fundame.
