Interesting. I ordered the Tokaido brand and they sent me a Shureido instead. Its about $1.50 more. I'm guessing they may have been out of the Tokaido. Real nice belt. 11 rows of stitching. Thick belt. stitching looks real good. Even all the way.
Now, ask me in a few years how it wears.


So... How is your belt, do you have a shureido BST-C or C2? I mean regular coton(bst-c) or extra wide and thick (bst-c2) or in satin ? is it with embroidery? The service with doshin is good?

Tokaido and Hirota make the best belts. They are expensive but worth it especially if you want your name written in Japanese on it. You can get them directly from Japan through a couple places like tokaidojapan.com and kuroobiya.com


Do you have hirota belt?? if so, what kind?

do you prefer hirota or tokaido (quality belt and embroidery)

My original shureido is now 15 years old and it has held up well. Frayed but still good looking.

You will enjoy that obi.

Agreed I actually went down to the KI warehouse in Inglewood, CA last year and purchased one of them. Very nicely made belt. It's a simple durable belt as well, worth the money.
