These jo are made in Kyushu (the southern part of Japan ) by NIIDOME Bokuto Seisakujo at Miyakonojo. This company keeps the traditional way of manufacture, such as drying the materials (wood) naturally not to destroy the fibers; therefore our Jo are solid and robust and can be used for a long time.
