What is MADE IN JAPAN?
According to the World Trade Organization rules of origin, in the case of a product which has been produced in more than one country, the product shall be determined to have origin in the country where the last substantial transformation took place.
In the case of Kendo Bogu, many companies use this definition to mislead their customers into believing that the products that they are selling are 100% Made in Japan - when in fact, after having most of the production done overseas, only the final stage of assembly is done by Japanese craftsmen.
In the current Kendogu market, there is only a single production facility that is able to produce a FULL Kendo Bogu set, including all of its parts.
The Kendogu Workshop of Japan Co., Ltd.
Formerly know as TADA SANGYO, The Kendogu Workshop of Japan Co., Ltd. is based in Miyazaki prefecture, and is Japan's only manufacturer of Kendogu that is capable of constructing a set of Kendogu Bogu COMPLETELY in Japan.
Their work is one of the most popular choices for Kendo practitioners in Japan, and their famous 'Made in Japan' tag can be seen on the Bogu sets of some of the most successful competitors of all time.
