Shopping for kendo armours in Japan these days? You can get excellent “do” like this chest protector made of shark skin (wrapped in plastic before purchase) at Shobu-do-sangyo specialist store in Tokyo’s Bunkyo ward!
Training or fighting during a martial arts championship at the Nippon-budokan? Consider walking 15-20 minutes or riding a subway between Kudanshita and Suidobashi stations to reach Shobu-do-sangyo specialist store! Ask our Japanese travel agency if you need an interpreter (English, French…) to discuss with the staff 🙂
