Togomei Performing a Stick Dance
        When performing a stick dance, any strong stick will do as is shown being used by Togomei, but the best are made from gaingiy "ironwood" (pictured making contact with Togomei's stick).   In folklore, the stick is endowed with supernatural properties and often takes on the character of a magical wand.
