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.

    The belt was well received and good, just not according to my expectations, which wanted this belt to be soft so that the ends of the belt when tied at the waist were not stiff.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you for your review and we are sorry that you had the expectation that it would "be soft" when tied. We hope that nothing in our "Product Description" gave the impression that it would be soft. Rest Assured, it will wear down with use we hope meet your expectations.

  2. The ultimate black belt!

    I was very satisfied with the belt. Incredible quality. Very practical and fast purchase process.

    TOKAIDO note: Thank you, happy to hear it.

  3. Great belt

    Posted by Michael on 14th Jan 2022

    Stitching and embroidery is spot on. Belt is slippery and unties frequently but I know to expect this with a satin belt. I know it will get better as it’s worn in. Delivery was a week early. What more can you ask for.

    TOKAIDO Note: Thank you and it will tie more comfortably after a little more use.

  10. 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.
