Revered in Japan for eons, dragons are mythological creatures said to have originated in China. They could live in the ground or the water, their roar summoned thunder and storms, and they could freely soar the skies. Being regarded as divine, they were seen as powerful creatures that also brought success and prosperity, thus making them a popular motif among warriors.

There is a Buddhist temple in Kyoto called Shinsen-en (Sacred Spring Garden). It is believed that a dragon god has resided in the temple's pond since ancient times.
Shinsen-en is also called“Ryukousui” (dragon mouth spring) as the water is always pure, and because the dragon can summon rain. To this day Shinsen-en remains a well-known power spot among the citizens of Kyoto.

Inspired by this legend, this Ryu Koshirae features a dragon theme on the Tsuba, Menuki and the Fuchi/kashira. The dragon is realistically depicted, and looks like it could spring to life at any time. The blade is made with aluminum/zink alloy.
The Ryu Koshirae are made one by one in the Nishijin area of Kyoto, only a few minutes by car from Shinsen-en and 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.

Absolutely amazing July 9, 2017
Reviewer: Tex He Yit from Coulommiers, Ile de france France  
The customer service is really kind, effective and reactive as usual. I was really surprised by the delay because it only took a week. The iaito is really nice and well balanced. The sword has not been as mirrored as the others iaito : Kurin, Minosaka (basic, Jidai, Higo Koshirae) or Toryumon.  The Gunome Hamon is different from the pictures and I was disappointed at first as well as the menuki positions (I was used to have a center position). But after few days, I get used to it and also prefer this position than the center one. I understand why the Suzaku series is different from the others. It really feels as a shinken in the look and when you have it in yours hands. My 83 years old sensei has seen more than hundred iaitos and antic shinkens but he was pleasantly surprised by the Suzaku series. He changed the tsuba by an antic one (same shape and weight to keep the balance) and polished the seppa to reveal the copper and now it looks more authentic and really awesome !
