The best aikido hakama, gi and obi from Japan Iwata brand

The other day we went with our cameras to Okubo, one of the legendary districts of Tokyo, there is placed the korean area for bars, restaurants and entertainment (part of Shin-Okubo as well) and also the traditional aikido Store known as Iwata. Specifically located in the neighborhood of the hundred men, Hyakunin-cho (百 人 町). This name was due to the Hyakunin-shu of Okubo (大 久保 百 人 众), the hundred men of Okubo, a police force specialized in handling firearms which was in charge of defending the shogun when he left the castle. The armed unit was consolidated in the district of Tokyo which currently covers the JR (Japan Railways) yellow Sobu sen line and the green Yamanote Sen line.

    Thanks for this enjoyable and informative video of Iwata. I well remember this place and the ladies. I understand they have moved…just across the street. I am going there this morning to see about purchasing two gi pants of the lightest material. They are the best to weather the sultry summer heat in my Tokyo apaato. Wonderful family and business. They have known all the greats and all the students, I think.
