Description

Since its establishment in 1782 (Edo period), Ginza Tosaku has been producing and selling bamboo rods for all kinds of fishing for 230 years. We also have many ready-made goods on display. These bamboo fishing rods are officially designated as a traditional handicraft by both Tokyo and the Japanese Government, but it is an art with few successors and work that takes many years to master only by practicing.

Each bamboo rod is created by one single craftsman, from the original bamboo to the finish. The process of choosing and combining the bamboo, heating, splicing and lacquer will take at least 3-4 months of work. A newly-lacquered rod will look better in the days following its completion, allowing one to enjoy the depth of each work of art.

Fish that are caught with these rods range from bitterling in rivers (about 5cm) to the size of river trout (approximately 40cm), and we sell a range of rods from 30cm to 7m.
We also cater for ocean fishing, with rods ranging from 10cm to 50cm.
Visitors to the store can physically touch a variety of bamboo rods, so please come and visit.
