Information Sizing
The Hikari is a rare tezashi bogu that is available in-stock meaning you do not have to wait months to get your hands on it. These aren't just run of the mill bogu though, each set has been hand made and will be adjusted to your sizes by experienced craftsmen before being shipped. A joy to wear and use because of its incredible fit and fantastic protection it has also been optimised for ease of movement.

It is stitched to 1.5bu to provide an elegant and dignified futon that provides excellent protection. It is finished with genuine indigo dyed deerskin giving it a luxurious appearance and excellent durability.

Without compromising the important protection of the Menbuton at the top, we have used 1.2bu Nanamezashi hand-stitching for the Mendare to make it lighter and by also making it shorter, the stress of the shoulders and arms are minimized. Also by using the Tozando IBB D-PRO Mengane, we can keep the Men as a whole light and ideally balanced making the Men feel very light to wear and move around in.

To make it easier to hold your Shinai, we have made the Kote with 1-line Namako and 2-line Kazari. We have also made Kote futon of the right-hand Kote 10% thicker to provide better protection.

The Do is a light and durable 50/60pc Yamato Do, the pieces vary depending on the size of the Do.

The Tare is decorated with high quality indigo-dyed leather that has been hand-stitched onto the Futon and features Gunomezashi stitching.

5 of 5 Very nice all purpose bogu June 5, 2019
Reviewer: Vlad from SAINT-DENIS, Reunion Island  
Excellent support and advices from the Tozando team. Buying my first own bogu has been a pleasant experience thanks to them (and my sensei of course :) , and practicing with it even more.
The Bogu is as expected, quite plain with nice details, protective enough while being rather light and comfortable. That’s a big improvement compared to my previous bogu , and of course after training I feel a little  like a smurf with that smoky ...  (smoked deerskin Kote Palm)  :)
I hope it will be a reliable partner for many years
