Japanese Clothing Tansu

Japanese clothing tansu or isho dansu range from the simple kiri (paulownia) wood two- or three-section drawered chest to opulent lacquer chests with highly detailed ironwork, such as the Sendai, Yonezawa, Nihonmatsu, and Tsuruoka.

Regardless of their chosen design and material, all are wonderfully varied and practical for the storage of clothing of any kind, with countless drawers and creative storage spaces and often a secret box tucked inside for special treasures.
