The origins of tosenkyo
Became the prototype of tosenkyo throwing pots (touko), China is making merry in the Imperial Court during the Han dynasty. We in Japan during the Nara period. Tosenkyo can feel free to twist and Japan and then long forgotten, once revived in the Edo period, hard rules difficult, too formal for the during the Edo period, more easily in, filled with women and children, little liquor had been invented in Kyoto on this much, however, was made popular in the seat of the feast.
It is due to where scared and stops the butterfly tree pillow on tosenkyo idea is throw it on the fan fan stayed nicely onto the pillow. This still represented tosenkyo tool shapes. Inspired by these everyday scene, sublimated it into play as a replacement for the investment pot, still popular among trendy rooted like a really free of pop-culture of the Edo period is a good example of frankness.
In Asakusa as movers and shakers from tosenkyo may also record that is has been flourishing, doing so on the grounds of Senso-ji Temple great upsurge of Buri extra eyes or banned from the Tokugawa shogunate.


Tosenkyo rules
Points are established by the position of the fan and the butterfly-shaped type, without just simply throw the fan, just throwing a good Butterfly-shaped drop. Natural reproduction of high degree of difficulty is high to score. Type is excellence, Volume 54 of the tale of Genji of name is included.
It is useless to how to throw a fan and like have a knack, too much power. If you've beaten the pillow will be taken penalty. Wind reading fans to manipulate gracefully is a master.
Impermanence and elegance to feel there are fairly simple, but also depends on its people. Seems to become very passionate about playing.
