About the product
The wood used for the "Tatami Hari Geta" matches the sole of the foot, unlike the traditional Geta, which is very flat. In that way, your feet will fit on this Geta, and it will be easier to grasp the Hanao (strap).
Also, our Hanao (strap), the most important part when selecting Geta or any sandals, is made using a cushioned material. This helps to reduce the friction of the strap so it can be worn easily without any discomfort or pain. The sole material for this Geta is EVA, which has some flexibility and elasticity, allowing you to walk comfortably and smoothly. (2) Aroma and cooling effect keeps you comfortable
Tatami is very important and unique in Japanese culture. It's soft, has a great aroma, good texture even in high humidity. With these effects, Tatami is an excellent match to Geta that will be worn with bare feet. It will keep your sole sweat free and fresh! You can also enjoy the fresh Tatami aroma. (3) Modern and stylish design
At the same time as being traditionally Japanese, our Geta is also modern and stylish.
The design is meant to be worn every day like a sandal. Even when going to a store near your house. Enjoy Tatami & Geta life any time! In addition, the outer material of the Hanao (strap) is made using the original Tatami edge (Matsuba Beri from "Matsuba Tatami Store" *Beri meaning edge of Tatami). The design focuses on the growing process of Igusa (Tatami grasses, rush).
6 different patterns to look out for! (4) Hands of the craftsmanship
"mizutori" products are completed from start to finish by hand. From the cutting of the fabric, materials, sewing, lifting and to finishing. Every process has been checked by eye. In particular, the attachment of the Hanao (strap) is important to be able to wear comfortably.
Our highly experienced craftspersons make Geta by hand everyday. While we understand having Geta handmade is inefficient and expensive in this world of technology, we believe that stories can only be delivered when many people are involved in the process of making like the emotions and passion of the craftspersons. Thus we continue to keep it handmade. (5) Creating ethical products
Since the material for Geta is wood, we face some problems that can't be solved. Such as tree knots and grains. Having different tree knots and grains are part of the beauty of natural wood. However, if it has too many knots or some strong grains that don't look nice, it usually can't be used. Thus our mission is to think about what we can do with these limited natural resources that would usually be discarded. By regenerating this Geta wood into "Tatami Hari Geta", we hope people can understand and deepen their awareness of natural materials. Also, as a company, that treats wood as the main material, we hope that we can play a part in SDGs.
We hope you will also feel the spirit of Japanese craftsmanship in this item, which updates traditional Japanese culture to suit modern fashion.

Wear often, so that Geta will become more accustomed to your feet.
-As we use natural Igusa (rush), each Geta has a colour difference. It may also have small imperfections.
-Since the hole is drilled through the surface of Tatami, Igusa (rush) may come out from the Geta. This does not cause any problems in the quality, thus they can be cut out using scissors or a nail clipper.
-As it's created by craftsperson, each shape could be different.
-Please do not soak in water
-Please do not leave under direct sun, around a fire, or in front of any heating products for a long time.
-If the Geta gets wet, please use a soft cloth to wipe away the water and dry it in a place with wind and shade.
-From an ethical point of view the colour of Tatami cannot be selected, as Tatami colour variates and changes, which is a unique characteristic of the materials.
-The Geta cannot be repaired due to the structure, but if you have any questions, we'll be happy to answer.
-Sizes are available in 1 cm increments and 2E specifications. Please select the shoe size according to your usual size. However, the size depends on the thickness of the instep. If you have a thinner instep, it might be more suitable to choose a smaller size.
-Makuake website does not accept returns.
-We also do not allow cancellation after order. We are not able to exchange the colour/design or the size. Please be aware when you order. How to Keep Clean

Tatami: Use a soft brush or dry towel to remove dirt
Clothing part or Hanao (strap): Wipe the dirt with a soft wet cloth, which is soaked and squeezed with warm water. In some cases, you can use neutral detergent to remove the dirt.

After wearing them, please dry the Tatami in a shady, dry and well-ventilated place with some wind.
About the maker
"mizutori" is an original Geta brand from Mizutori Industrial Co., Ltd. The company has been established since 1937 in Shizuoka, as a Geta and footwear manufacturer. It has been involved in the making of footwear, and currently, the Heel Geta is its iconic brand product. It can be worn like a sandal and has been sold worldwide.
This "Tatami Hari Geta" is the fact that two companies from different industries such as Tatami and Geta could come together only due to our combined passion for passing on Japanese culture to the next generation. Combined with the fact that both companies have their base in Shizuoka, helped this vision come true.
We hope this combined passion will allow our amazing product to reach out to your heart!!
