- A tsukuri (pre-tied, also sometimes called tsuke), taiko knot, Nagoya obi.
- Known as a tsukuri obi, tsuke obi or easy obi.
- Made and bought in Japan
- Most obi, including two-part, pre-shaped taiko knot obi, require an obijime and obiage to hold the rear knot in place, both of which are always bought separately. With a taiko knot style obi, an obi makura (obi bustle pad) is worn inside the knot too, to pad it out at the top, though a few two-part taiko obis have a makura already inside the knot, however, most don’t. One can buy actual obiage, obijime and makura or one can improvise with these items
- Please be aware that different monitors display colour slightly differently. Therefore the colour in the photos and description is a guide only
- how to wear obi makura, obiage and obijime with your obi, on my blog, plus names of the parts of the obi, and a diagram with shapes and scale of the different obi types.
Good – a dark spot on the the part that hangs below the rear knot (the taresaki) – see photos

Obi are pretty much one-size-fits-all items
