Product Description

The Expert 専門家 (Senmonka) is made with a 100% thick canvas core and covered with an outer layer of special high grade satin. It has been described as the "look of silk at the cost of satin". Sewn with 11 rows of reinforced stitching for resilience and a beautiful finish. Available in standard and extra width. For EXTRA WIDTH belts choose one size longer so that the embroidery will not be lost in the knot when tied. It is designed to last and wear down gradually giving it the desired time honored look.

Custom Embroidery 

Tokaido Japan provides the highest quality embroidery in Japanese or English. No company can surpass the level of embroidery perfected by Tokaido.

The secret in the manufacturing of our belts is that the parts are cut and embroidered separately before being assembled and sewn together. This is the reason why they are so strong, neat and beautifully finished. The embroidery will not show through on the reverse sideThis is the hallmark of a true, Made in Japan - Tokaido Black Belt.

In TOKAIDO’s continuing commitment to quality and customer service we have decided to add 3 font options for our black belt embroidery. Below from left to right we are offering: 

Left Choice 昇龍 translated as “Rising Dragon”. (Default font)

Middle Choice 太行書 translated as “Bold Cursive”.

Right Choice 龍神 translated as “Dragon God”. 


Each kanji font has it’s own character with the Left Choice described as crisp and clear, the Middle Choice characterized as strong and bold, and the Right Choice as sophisticated and detailed. TOKAIDO is happy to provide this choice and we hope you will appreciate these new options. 

Please note: the Left Choice 昇龍 “Rising Dragon” is the default font and will be used if neither of the other two are chosen.

You may choose to embroider your style name and/or your personal name. For Japanese text, please select from the pop up menus by clicking on the Kanji Style Names or the Names in Japanese Katakana below the field that you desire. If your Style or Name is not in the menu then use this Google Translate link to CREATE and then COPY and PASTE into the field(s) you desire.  We will confirm that the translation is correct before production. If you prefer English/Roman letters, then type directly in the field(s) of your choice.

Production Time 

As with all black belts that are made in Japan by Tokaido Japan, each one is made as it is ordered. This way we can ensure that you receive the best kuroobi possible. Currently un-embroidered belts require 3 weeks and embroidered belts require 5 weeks.


If you have any considerations you would like us to consider please write in the "Notes" box to let us know. You can also upload a document or picture.

    Posted by CharlesWayne on 30th Aug 2021

    I purchased a satin black belt with calligraphy on both sides. I wear it with pride. Very nice product and quality belt. It will last me a long time. Good company.

    TOKAIDO note. Delighted to hear that you like it.

  3. Excellent item from an excellent company

    Posted by Chris Spendlove (UK) on 22nd Jul 2021

    I wanted an expertly made belt and there was only one company I wanted it from, Tokaido. The communication from start to finish and any issue I had with embroidery was quickly resolved. If only every company were as efficient as Tokaido! I’ve always found their equipment to be top notch and made to high standards. I wouldn’t want any other company to make my equipment if I’m honest.

    TOKAIDO note. Thank you for your ringing endorsement. The Customer Service department will be happy to read it along with the factory. We look forward to serving you well into the future.

  4. Sooo very pleased

    Posted by Tim Bovey on 12th Apr 2021

    Received my first embroidered belt about 2 months ago on time and by surprise, absolutely stoked with it and the quality still can't stop looking down at it and proud to wear it. Took a long time to earn the right to be able to wear it and am pleased to have gone through tokaido, many thanks to u and the maker of my belt. Rei

    TOKAIDO note. We really appreciate reviews like this that convey a customer's feelings about their order. We hope to serve you well into the future.

  5. Great value, best quality, no hassles

    Posted by James Barritt on 13th Jan 2021

    Ordering a belt that bears your name and your styles name can be daunting and complicated. This belt represents many years of training and you would not trust that just to anyone. Tokaido made this process so simple & hassle free, and for the incredible quality at a fantastic price. We could not have been happier with the service, and speed at which we received the belt. Highly recommend this great company! Very happy customer!

    TOKAIDO note: We are delighted to read of your satisfaction and hope you enjoy the belt for years to come.

  7. Meravigliosa

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Oct 2020

    La vostra non è una semplice cintura ricamata è un'opera d'arte. Complimenti è bellissima.
    Sono orgoglioso di indossarla, per sempre Tokaido. ❤

    Nota TOKAIDO. Grazie per l'acquisto e la recensione. Siamo felici che tu sia soddisfatto.

  8. Awesome belt

    Posted by Kristhian on 3rd Aug 2020

    The embroidery looks so good that it actually looks like ink. My only complaint is that my belt unties easily, i don’t know if its because the belt is new or if it will be like that forever but overall an amazing belt.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review. Satin belts take a little longer to break in but it will.

  9. Amazing as always

    Posted by Carlos Bautista on 20th Jul 2020

    Been training martial arts for 39 years now and been to Japan more than 15 times. Used different brands and quality but none never ever comes close to Tokaido. Always my favorite!!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you! It is wonderful to hear this.

  10. Black Belt

    Posted by Tony on 4th Jul 2020

    I recently received my new Obi from Tokaido Japan. I must say the Satin finish on the Belt is amazing and the Custom Embroidery is stunning. I've been ordering Belts and Gis from Tokaido Japan since mid 1970 and their Quality and Service is matched by no one. I just want to say Thank You Tokaido Japan for such Quality Merchandise throughout the years!

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your nice review and we appreciate your being one of our long term customers. We look forward to serving you well into the future.
