There are several kinds, as the koshi-oke, koshi-dzuto, men-oke, kouri, etc. For ordinary officers, the kind called koshi-dzuto is recommended; it is made of kan-yori (twisted paper strings) in the style of fine basketwork, and measures about 1 foot by 9.5 inches. It is carried at the right side of the waist. Besides this it is advisable to carry another bag (which is called uchi-gaye), in which are 3 or 4 gou of raw rice (about 1lb).
