Used but super pretty doukake for Tsugaru Shamisen sized dou. The fiery mix of gold, red, and black is a combo that just looks stunning! It’s chipped in several spots (see photo), so you can get it at a fantastic price! Only the corners and sides are affected, so it will still look super great on your shamisen.
If you’re in love with Japanese tradition, this is definitely the right doukake for you! Tsugaru laqcuer is a highly esteemed craftwork that involves a long and beautiful crafting process.
