This Mokugyo is the real deal. Handcrafted in Japan from camphor laurelwood, it is a pleasure to behold as well as use. It is suitable for a Zen hall, home altar, or display case. You’ll find beautiful detail in the carved fish design which is traditional for Zen drums and reminds us to be always wakeful, like a fish that doesn’t sleep. This Mokugyo has a light natural finish on it, which shows off its wood grain without paint or heavy lacquer.The striker is made from birch, and has a high quality striking head. The pillow is similarly top rate, sewn to a high standard with lovely brocade.

A Mokugyo is a temple drum traditionally used to accompany Buddhist chanting, but can be used as a general percussion instrument.

  1. The sound is rich and sonorous. The wood is polished and beautiful with the grains swirled. The beautiful cushion makes for a better sound. Wonderful customer service and for this price range, it has a perfect rich deeper sound for accompanying chanting practice in our Zen center.

    • Glad you like our Mokugyo Martine. But it DOES come with a pillow, or it should! We’ll send you one today!

  2. Wonderful mokugyo! Pleasant sound and perfect for chanting Namo Amida Buddha.

  3. Perfect for what I wanted for my sitting place.
