【New Year’s Special】Japanese Traditional HAGOITA Making

What is HAGOITA?

HAGOITAーwooden paddle, originated from a Japanese tradition for girls.
At the beginning of New Year, girls play HANETSUKIーa badminton-like game with wooden paddles and a colourful shuttlecock.
Originally, HAGOITA was kind of present to new year’s celebrate girl ‘s birth. The paddles vary in size to symbolize girl’s growth, and also symbolize health and safety.
 Since HAGOITA is decorated mainly during the New Year ‘s Holidays to the New Year ‘s festival around January 15 , HANETSUKI playing is often played around this time.
Recently, HAGOITA gradually became decoration rather than HANETSUKI playing.
