HUMANISED JAPANESE WEAPONS OF TOUKEN RANBU UNIVERSE
Initially, Touken Ranbu is a Japanese collectible card video game, it got a great popularity in 2015 in Japan, and over the next year became known among fans of Japanese animation and games throughout the world.

Characters of Touken Ranbu are embodiments of the legendary Japanese weapons in the form of male warriors.

According to the plot they are guided by the will of the sage and travel to places of great historical battles to change the course of history.

Character design is developed with an involvement of many talented manga artists and developers of conceptual character designs for games and anime series.

Due to this feature, despite the huge number of characters, each of them makes an impact with originality and contrast to the others.





Sometimes they call Touken Ranbu opposite (or gender reversion) of another famous Japanese collectible card video game Kantai Collection, where the military ships took a shape of cute girls.

This is known as “moe anthropomorphism”, a form of anthropomorphism where “moe” qualities are given to non-human beings, objects, or phenomena.

As well as Kantai Collection, Touken Ranbu reached the heights of popularity which is crowned with anime adaptation.

Even two in their case: Touken Ranbu - Hanamaru (2016, ongoing), Touken Ranbu (2017).



Each month there are multiple announcements of future releases of various kinds of merchandise on Touken Ranbu.

Munechika Mikazuki is probably the most popular character who associates with the game and the universe of Touken Ranbu.

Recently a detailed 25-centimeter figure of this character was released:

KYOTO SPINNING TOP
Spinning top in Japan is at the same time a souvenir, an interior decoration and an interesting toy.

And Kyoto spinning top – one of the oldest types of Japanese tops – is especially popular here.

Kyoto spinning top was born back in the heyday of the aristocracy in Japan.

It is said that Court Ladies in the Imperial Palace made the top by wrapping kimono cloth on the bamboo stick.

Over time, Kyoto spinning top began to spread among the common people of the city.

As most of Kyoto-born items, Kyoto spinning top is both cute and refined.

Now it continues to be popular among foreigners and Japanese alike.

This is not surprising - after all the tops can simultaneously be used as interesting souvenirs, bright interior stuff, and fun, unusual toys.



Children playing with Kyoto spinning top





One of the unique features of Kyoto spinning top is a method of its manufacturing.

Kyoto spinning top is made of bamboo stick covered with coloured wood tape.



Another characteristic feature of the Kyoto spinning top is its bright colour palette.

Because of this it immediately catches the eye, and can be used as an extraordinary decoration.

It is also popular among children - it is fun to watch bright colours succeeding each other while top is spinning around its axis.



Kyoto spinning tops, which are used as toys and interior decoration during New Year holidays



In Japan, Kyoto spinning top is popular as a toy not only among children but also among adults.

Indeed, as mentioned above, from the very beginning of its history in Japan top was used for entertainment in the palace court.

And in our time as well, the adult Japanese play traditional spinning top games during New Year or other traditional holidays.

Please, purchase traditional Kyoto spinning top here



There are lots of types of Kyoto spinning top with a variety of colour options.

Among Japanese customers the most popular are the sets of three small, but different size tops.

They are so much fun in a company of friends! In addition, these tops are much cheaper than separate small tops.

Please, purchase the set above here



On a nearby shelf to a small spinning top in Japanese stores is sold a large spinning top.

Most often it is used for interior decoration, since its size is not always suitable for small children.

But sometimes adults themselves get these tops off the shelves to have fun and to remember their childhood.

Please, purchase large spinning top here



However, traditional variants of Kyoto spinning tops are not the only one popular in Japan.

There is also famous Kyoto spinning tops from a “Vegetables from Kyoto” series.

These tops are made in the form of vegetables, which are traditionally grown in the nearby areas of the city of Kyoto. Interestingly, the whirligig manufacturing method remains unchanged.

This design supposedly marks a new milestone in the history of Kyoto spinning top. There is, for example, a top, made in the form of the famous Japanese vegetable daikon (Japanese radish):

Please, purchase it here



Kyoto spinning top is so popular in Japan that the Japanese even create separate items which remind them of it.

We recommend these kanzashi (hair decoration), made in the shape of Kyoto spinning top.

Please, purchase here



Despite its long history and temporary periods of decline, Kyoto spinning top today continues to exist and develop. It surprises everyone who has ever interested in it even for a short while, with the variety of its shapes and colours.

Let's try to find your own unique Kyoto spinning top!

JAPANESE UMBRELLAS
It is believed that the first umbrella was brought to Japan during the reign on emperor Kinmei in 552 by the king’s Seong of Baekje messenger.

At first it had a form of a hat with a canopy, serving not like a rain wear, but rather like a sunshade and protection from evil.

It used to be an exclusively aristocrats’ accessory, symbolizing power and authority.

However, as the time passed, a concept of umbrella has undergone some changes, got localized and started to be used as a rain protection, too.



Some scrolls dating back to 14th century depict noblesse with big umbrellas. However, at that time umbrellas were used only in an opened state and couldn’t be closed.

The technology to actually close an umbrella was developed in Azuchi-Momoyama period (end of 16 century), but became widely used in the latter half of the Edo period (1603 – 1868).

As an evidence of the fact that umbrella became a daily necessity item, it appears on many traditional ukiyo-e paintings of the Edo period.



Painting by Utagawa Hiroshige depicts sudden rain



In movies and plays ronins (samurais without a master) often make umbrellas as a side job.

In fact, there are some documents which prove that by the end of the Edo period, when financial situation of the clans has become difficult, even samurais of the lower ranks were making umbrellas in order to improve their clan’s state of affairs.

Umbrellas have undergone a long path of various improvements to become an integral part of the traditional culture, an item embodying Japanese aesthetics.

For example, check this collection of 24 bone umbrellas with Japanese style patterns:





They are very light, yet strong.

Size: 60cm

Materials: 100% polyester, Teflon coating, glass fiber, wooden handle

Brand name: mabu
