We have produced a comfortable product for pilgrims, which is called Sawayaka Kasa Fit.
This is a string that you can easily attach to a pilgrim hat and feel comfortable fitting.
We have heard a lot of voices about a pilgrim hat from visitors, so we made it to solve the problems. This is a our own product that reflects their requests.
In 2015, we updated it as a new model.
We have changed the attachment of Velcro tape to buckle for a strong wind.
■The 1st Improvement
There is a ring-shaped part made of bamboo , which is called Gotoku (五徳) inside of a
pilgrim hat. You put your head in Gotoku and wear the hat over it, but sometimes
Gotoku hurts your head or temples. So visitors needed to cover around Gotoku by a
towel or bandage to not touch their skin directly. Also a towel or bandage gets dirty on
walking pilgrimage route day by day, so they needed to wash them and it took time to
put it on again.
■The 2nd Improvement
As you purchase a pilgrim hat, there is always a single string tied with Gotoku. Many
pilgrim beginners understand that is used for tying a hat, but it is very difficult for them
to find the right way. Unfortunately, there is no description of how to use. We have
been thinking that it is not kind and helpful. Actually, there are some pilgrims who wear
their hats incorrectly and feel uncomfortable. Therefore, they have experienced that
hats were blown (or almost blown) in a windy day or crossing by cars
■The 3rd Improvement
A pilgrim hat is the best object for protection from the sun and rain while walking, but
not from wind. Visitors who get troubles with the effect of wind, it might be tied loosely.
The right way to use the string is to attach under the chin, but it is very difficult for
beginners to do so correctly.
We have heard so many voices and requests about the pilgrim hat and string from
visitors, so we produced the product to improve these problems. If you have
experienced same problems or you are worried about how to use it, you better try our
There is a mesh on the part of touching your skin, so you will feel cool and dry. it is also
very easy to attach because of hook.
It is the most comfortable and functional string for a pilgrim hat we have ever made,
