Handmade of wood, feathers, gold and brass paper in a workshop in Tokyo, this hamaya is an arrow that destroys obstacles and demons.

Hamayas are a symbolic lucky charm, that drive away bad luck and protect you from harm. Traditionally, they're given to newborn babies in Japan.

Use it in your home to ward off unwanted spirits and decorate your space with something new. Hang it on your wall among other objects like pictures or masks. Use several arrows for a wall installation to create a visual impact all while driving away negative energy around the house.

About Umami Mart

Umami Mart was founded in 2007 by Kayoko Akabori and Yoko Kumano as an international food & drink blog that eventually spawned into an online Japanese kitchen-and-barware importing business. In 2012, Umami Mart opened a retail store in Oakland, CA, which specializes in Japanese-made bar tools, glassware, and accessories, including UM-designed products. Functional design, quality, and service are all a part of the Umami Mart philosophy.
