  • O'Bon 2023

    Most Craftsmen and workshops will take a few days off from August 11th to August 16th, so all custom-made orders will be delayed accordingly.

    O'Bon 2023

    In Japan, the O'Bon festival is a yearly celebration that takes place during the summer. It combines Japanese tradition and Buddhist beliefs to honor the ancestral spirits. Over time, O'bon evolved into a family gathering holiday as the spirits of the deceased are believed to revisit the household altar every year at that time. On that occasion, family members meet to pay tribute to their ancestors by visiting and cleaning their graves. But O'bon with its traditional dance called "Bon Odori" is also a time of merriment and joy.

    Like every year, August 11th (Fri) is Mountain Day, a national holiday in Japan, which marks the beginning of some holidays for many Japanese, our craftsmen included. So, until August 16th (Wed), the majority of workshops will be closed, production time extended and we will not be able to provide quotations for custom-made items.
    All custom-made orders placed before and during this period will be delayed by about a week, but fear not, this will be automatically taken into account in the estimation of the shipping dates displayed on all products, as well as in your cart.

    See you soon on!

  • Summer Special Offer

    10% OFF a product selection! (until August 30th, 2 pm JST)

    Summer special offer!

    It's already July, and with summer in full swing, it's becoming more difficult to keep up with training due to the rising temperatures. Nevertheless, we'll strive to practice and improve our skills. Around the world, Budo enthusiasts gather for summer seminars to train together and expand their knowledge.

    Despite the thick humidity, July is an exciting time in Japan. People join together to enjoy Matsuri festivals, where the night sky is illuminated by Hana-bi (Fireworks), and the streets are bustling with passersby. Children eagerly line up to order Kakigōri (shaved ice dessert) while everyone relishes the warmth of summer evenings.

    Speaking of festivals, one of July's highlights is the Tanabata festival, held on the evening of the seventh day. The "Star Festival" ("Hoshimatsuri"/"星祭り") celebrates the only day of the year when the two deities "Orihime" and "Hikoboshi" can meet since they are separated by the Milky Way for the rest of the year.

    For this discount, we will offer 10% OFF a product selection.
    We picked for you Dogi, Bags for your equipment, Belts, Oils, and more!

    This offer will be running for two months and will end on August 30th, at 2 pm Japan time.

    That's it for this time, enjoy the discounts, and see you very soon on KuSakuraShop!

    10% OFF a product selection! (until June 30th, 2 pm JST)

    10% OFF a product selection!

    Here we are in the middle of Spring, one of our favorite times of the year. Japanese families celebrated the "Golden Week" at the beginning of May, a week-long holiday where loved ones gather and people travel across the country. Vibrant Koinobori windsocks, shaped like carp, were displayed everywhere as a celebration of Children's Day (which falls on the last day of the Golden Week). The multicolored scenery is truly a feast for the eyes. These windsocks are a symbol of power and energy, inspiring us to adopt a courageous mindset and invigorating our spirits.

    Late-blooming cherry blossoms can still be seen in the north of the country, while here in Tokyo, we're already enjoying the beautiful hues of Wisteria in shades of purple, pink, and white. Most importantly, the weather is now becoming warmer and sunnier, making it a perfect time to head to the Dojo and practice martial arts. Though the Dojo can get crowded, it's always a thrilling experience to see practitioners from all over the world with different cultures and backgrounds, coming together to learn and improve their skills.

    And as we are mentioning the "Golden Week", we wanted to thank you again for your support during our last charity event. Your generosity is helping us to make a positive impact in the world and we are honored to be part of a community that cares about humanitarian causes. Thank you for joining us in making a difference.

    It's now time for our new discount, and we will offer 10% OFF a variety of products. Our selection includes Official Kodokan Belts, bags for your weapons, Tenugui (always handy after a good practice session at the dojo), Dogi and Hakama for your Kendo or Iaido training, Wooden Gift Box for your belts, and more products.

    Don't forget, this offer will be running for two months and will end on June 30th, at 2 pm Japan time.

    That's it for this time, enjoy the discounts, and see you very soon on KuSakuraShop!
