Tsumami Hagoita Racket January 21, 2021 – Posted in: News – Tags: , , ,

Here comes our Hagoita racket for the New Year. Hagoita is the racket used for the game Hanetsuki. The game is similar to badminton but without the nest. The Japanese believes that playing Hanetsuki can drive away the evil because the movement is similar to the harau action.

Decorated rackets are often displayed as an ornament during the new year period to ward off the evil.

Our design was being built around a Tsumami peacock. This eye-catching peacock on our Hagoita is accompanied with plum blossoms, peach blossoms, camellia, chrysanthemum and asters. A blue and white mizuhiki ume knot was added at the bottom to complete the design.

With all these wonderful colours, we wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year.  Please take a look at our shop for our wide range of Geisha Inspired Accessories.
