Style&Beading: The formal style of this nenju has 108 koshu 'children'/main beads, two larger boshu 'parent' beads and 4 shitendama 'segment' or ' marker' beads which are slightly smaller than the 108 koshu beads). The 2 boshu are placed at opposite ends of the string of koshu beads. One boshu has 2 strings of additional beads hanging from it, the other boshu has 3 strings of additional beads.

Use: The nenju is held in a figure-8 and one end with a parent bead placed over one middle finger - the other boshu bead end over the other middle finger, so that the tassle-strings rest on the backs of the hands and the koshu beads hang between the palms, which are placed together in gassho.
