About this sight

As the name suggests, this museum is dedicated to everything about Battledores, from their history to production methods. Battledore is a game resembling modern day badminton, played with paddle-like rackets and a shuttlecock. The game dates back to as early as 14th century in Japanese history. Though small, the museum offers quite a rare and an exclusive collection of paddles from before WWII. Each paddle features a unique traditional Japanese design, setting it apart from Battledore paddles from other countries.
