2 Far East Asian ‘Te Guruma’

Key Facts


This product is supplied ready painted.



Known as ‘Te Guruma’ handcarts in rural Japan, these two types of East Asian Hand Cart with their rustic design are typical of such carts found throughout Eastern Asia from the earliest of times. In fact, they were still to be seen as very common man-powered vehicles during World War Two and even the Vietnam War.

The smaller bodied cart is pulled along behind the porter, usually with a strap also over his shoulder to enable him to lean into his work of towing his load. The larger of the two carts sometimes known as a ‘Push-Pull’ cart, would have a couple of men pulling in the front along with a couple more men pushing from the rear. The ‘Push-Pull’ could transport much greater loads because of the extra manpower and with it’s larger wheels it was better suited to the more uneven roadways experienced between many villages.

Models supplied unassembled.
