[Miyamoto Unosuke] Banging the Kinmetsu Daiko Drum, a Unique Product of the Coronavirus Pandemic
Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten has mastered the Kinmetsu technique of antibacterial finishing and applies it to various facilities and products, in addition to their own products.
Various endeavors and new products that incorporate numerous ideas and contrivances to overcome the lingering coronavirus pandemic have been attracting attention.
On June 15th, 2021,Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten, which has carried out manufacturing, sales, repairs, and even rentals of taiko drums, instruments for Noh theater and gagaku, and equipment for festivals since its founding in 1861, started applying antibacterial and antiviral finishing to the taiko drums and stands that they carry. The antibacterial agent used for Kinmetsu is certified by the Photocatalysis Industry Association of Japan (PIAJ). Not only does it have antibacterial properties, it is also harmless to humans and objects because it does not contain organic solvents or additives. In addition, it stands out for its long-lasting effect, as the adhesion provided by the unique coating technique is also resistant to friction. Sterilization has also been verified in tests using devices that quantify cleanliness*.
By all means, please enjoy taiko drums safely and with peace of mind.
