Bonji (Siddham script) is used for writing Sanskrit, and is said to have been introduced to Japan during the 6th-9th century together with the teachings of Buddhism. It was said that Bonji was a holy script inherited from the Mahāvairocana

For this reason Bonji glyphs each represent a Buddha or Bodhisattva, and depending on the year of the Chinese zodiac, each has a specific guardian deity represented by a Bonji. Thus it became popular among warriors to use Bonji to decorate swords or fittings. Mahāvairocana (Dainichi Nyorai) and Acala (Fudō-myōō) became especially popular among the samurai.

This Bonji Koshirae features the Mahāvairocana of the Diamond Realm and the Womb Realm. The Menuki features the Avalokiteśvara (Shōkan'non Bosatsu) and the Shakyamuni Tathāgata (Shaka Nyorai). For the Tsuba, the front features the Womb Realm Mahāvairocana, Acala, Mañjuśrī (Monju Bosatsu) and the Avalokiteśvara (Kanon Bosatsu). The back side features the Diamond Realm Mahāvairocana, Ksitigarbha (Jizō Bosatsu) and the Shakyamuni Tathāgata. The blade is made with aluminum/zink alloy. The fittings of this Bonji Koshirae are not only for decoration or design purposes, but embody the religion of the samurai and is infused into into this sword. These ideals have been passed on to the warriors of the 21st century.

The Bonji Koshirae are made individually in Kyoto, the home to many prominent temples which greatly influenced the lives and ideals of the samurai. The Iaito also comes with a certificate with the “Kyoto Japan” Mark.

The "Kyoto Japan" Mark is a mark endorsed by the Kyoto Industry Development Consortium and it's given to companies that protects and develops the traditional craftsmanship in Kyoto, domestically and overseas.

As the Suzuku series of Iaito are made in Kyoto, Tozando has been certified to use the "Kyoto Japan" mark with the Suzaku series of Iaito.
