People carried paper and other items in the sewn-together ends of their sleeves. Netsuke wouldn't be invented for another 500 or so years, so you wouldn't see the little lacquered purse boxes popular during the Edo period.
Inflation was a big problem, so clothing or rice was often used instead of cash. I guess that would have been harder to steal. And yep, i'm pretty sure there were still pickpockets
