追加情報                             Additional Information

This type of pierced tsuba was very popular in Kyoto in the early Edo period. Kyō Sukashi tsuba were named after Kyōto which was at one time the capital city of Japan.

It was adopted by the Owari Sukashi school, but the Owari examples tended to use a more thicker plate.

When the design was approved by the Akasada school of Edo, it was distinguished by this thicker plate. The most common motifs for this type of tsuba are described as:

Myōga Kari Kai Zu 茗 荷 雁 繋 図 and sometimes contain Karigane wilde 金 (wild geese), Myōga 茗 荷 (Japanese ginger) and Fundo 分 銅 (Japanese weights).

During this period, these three items were the elegant elements of the classic designs.
