Our origin dates back to the year 1690 when Bushuu Ito school of the craft
was first founded by Masanaga ItoiÉ¡³·j.
The school provided many craftsmen who were retained by the Tokugawa
shogunate and the handguards made by the craftsmen of the school spread over
However, after the decree banning the wearing of swords was promulgated,
the demand of the handguards dramatically declined and the craftsmen were
gradually forced to change their products
from sword related ones to other others such as pipes, netsuke (miniature
carving attached to the end of a cord hanging@from a pouch), kanzashi
(ornamental hairpins) etc.

who started this business in 1916 carrying the craftsmanship of the
traditional Ito school.
