This natural cut bamboo is made by Mikio Toki, longtime friend of the Drachen foundation. Toki has become a recognized master of the Edo kite of Japan. Studying with Katsushita Ota, Toki has refined his personal style to become a true professional Edo kite maker. He continues the tradition of selling kites as New Year’s gifts and also makes larger, more extravagant kites for expositions and festivals worldwide. He is a popular workshop leader and exemplary kite ambassador. Read more about Mikio San carrying on the Edo kite tradition on the Drachen Foundation’s website (page 26).

All bamboo lengths are 42″ (3.5 feet) with the exception of 4mm stock, which is 40.5 inches.
