The suzuribako’s storage box is signed Urushi-sho Hyōkan [the Lacquer worker Hyōkan], with a seal reading Urushi-sho Okada Hyōkan [the lacquer worker Okada Hyōkan); and Maki-e-shi Mitsutaka [the lacquer master Mitsutaka], with a seal reading Mitsutaka.

Inside the fitted box cover is a waka poem by Shokoin-no-miya Doko Hosshinnoh (1612 – 1678):

Asagarasu 

koe suru mori no 

kozue shimo 

tsuki wa yofukaki 

ariake no kage 

Even at daybreak 

when the squawks of crows are heard 

from the branches of the wood 

the moon casts its pale shadows 

as if it were still night.
