Description

Vintage Japanese hagoita paddle for use with old fashioned hanetsuki game.  This game was in the past a popular pastime for girls who would use the paddles to hit a shuttlecock back and forth.  The game was especially popular on New Years day.  Hanetsuki is no longer commonly played in Japan though many people collect and produce their own hagoita paddles to be used as decorative items.

About the listed item

This old hagoita paddle is in good condition with no cracks though there are marks and scratches from past use.  There are also many dimples on the paddle which were caused by the paddle hitting the flying shuttlecock.  The paddle dates from the mid to late Japanese Showa period (1926-1989).
