It’s something I’ve never understood: People walking around with Giant Sticks. I don’t see them all the time, but when I do I try to get a picture. Sometimes I don’t manage to, because the person gets on a train or something, so keep in mind that I’ve seen even more giant sticks than I’ve listed here.

/I’ve excluded everything that I could easily recognize (i.e. a mop).

That isn't a pillar. It's something that she's carrying

    Is it a katana or bokuto in the case, like you see some characters in anime with?

      Well, it’s probably not a katana, now that I look at this post again, not to mention thinking about the potential illegality of carrying one around.

    One more time now…/
    /So, did you ever find out or ask about what these things are?

  • Onetwothree

    they are most probably kyudo bows.
