Determining the Length of Your Rakusu
The best way to determine the length of your rakusu is to try one on
with the robe you wear for zazen. Fold the front part of the rakusu in
half, and stretch the straps so that the vertical edge of the front part
and the straps form line. The back neckpiece will be folded in half. Now
measure from the bottom edge of the rakusu to the center of neck piece.
That is the measurement needed; remember to indicate this on
