Tsurikawa / Subway Handle

In Japan, the word “tsurikawa” describes objects, usually suspended, that help standing passengers to keep their balance while the vehicle is in motion.

In the early days of Japanese public transportation, those handles were made of leather, hence the name “tsurikawa” which literally means “hang” (tsuri吊) and “leather” (kawa革). Although “tsurikawa” is the name commonly used, some people also call them “tsuriwa” (wa means ring).

After being stolen by Japanese youths, these became very popular in the car scene and people have started attaching these in various places such as to their interior grab handles or hanging from the rear of their car.
