Taketora is a special brand of Yamagishi Bamboo Inc, founded in 1894. We make and sell bamboo products.Our base is located in an area called Awa where one of special bamboo species called Tiger Bamboo grows.Through our business, we propose happy lifestyle with bamboo.

The logo of Taketora is a combination of bamboo leaves and a chinese character which means "tiger"




The surfaces of Tiger Bamboos have unique patterns like tigers' skin.Tiger Bamboos occur only in our base area, Awa in Susaki city, Kochi pref.in Japan.When transplanted into any other area than Awa, Tiger bamboos lose their tiger-like patterns.The reason why Tiger bamboo grows its characteristic patterns only in Awa is not scientifically clarified even though once scientists tried to solve the mystery.

The mysterious characteristics and beauty of Tiger Bamboo have attracted many bamboo dealers through Asia and media staff from all around the world. They have come to see our company as only Tiger Bamboo dealer. Staff members from BBC in the UK said "Tiger Bamboo is miracle!" again and again.That is why we call Tiger Bamboo "Miracle Bamboo".




Tiger Bamboos occur deep in mountains.Cutting and carrying down heavy bamboos are hard work.What is important is to select ones which have beautiful patterns NOT harvesting good bamboos which would be parent roots in the future.The selection is our workmen's professional work handed down from our predecessors.Harvesting is done in winter in order to protect the bamboos from bugs.


Harvested Tiger Bamboos are classified by their size, quality and use.The values of Tiger Bamboos depend on the patterns of their surfaces.




Bamboos are passed over a flame with a gas burner to make them more durable.In addition, this makes the patterns of the surfaces easier to see.Then, make them straight for raw bamboos are naturally curved.




Prepared Bamboos are manufactured for many different goods like chairs, kitchen tools, and bags.




Our mission is to save Japanese bamboo tradition and hand it down to the next generation.People in Japan has been using bamboos for making tools for everyday life, religious rituals and many other different purposes. Nowadays, many cheap bamboo goods are imported and prevail.That makes why we intend to focus on domestically harvested bamboos.Our workmen cut and harvest bamboos in our local mountains with their own hands not using machinery.

From the 20th century, we have believed strongly that bamboos are useful and necessary for sustainable society and economy.Bamboos are one of the fastest-growing plants in the world.They mature 20 meter wide only in three months.Reusable as materials for products in three years, they are for ecology,In order to save our tradition and culture, we make use of technology.Our business strategy is now based on promoting and selling bamboo goods through the internet.We will never stop trying to save and expand Japanese bamboo culture.
