The powerful style of the tsugaru shamisen is said to have been inspired by harsh storms which the founders of tsugaru style had to endure every year. The storms they survived were snowstorms, yet that is not the only storm that shares a connection with tsugaru shamisen. The boom of tatakibachi (percussive bachi strikes) on the shamisen inspires the feeling of roaring thunder.
We all know where there's thunder, there's lightning. Turn your shamisen into the ultimate storm on stage. Introducing Raiko (Lightning) Itomaki, handmade by Kiju Kitamura in Japan! Where there's your thundering tsugaru shamisen, your Raiko Itomaki will bedazzle your fans and friends!

Return PolicyReturns are accepted if the product was damaged during delivery, or one of the LED units is defective.
If this occurs, please write store (at) bachido (dot) com and we will discuss the matter with you to determine the solution. If need be, Kiju-san is happy to repair your itomaki.
For general returns to be accepted, Raiko Itomaki must be in brand-new condition. This especially applies to shaping the peg-end of the itomaki. Every shamisen is unique, so if it has been already fitted into your shamisen, it may not fit into another. Thus, we cannot accept returns if it was already fitted for a shamisen.
