Etymology[edit | edit source]
In Japanese, tonko" (遁甲) can be roughly translated as "evasive armor". The name of the tool used by this spell, shinobi-tabi, can be translated as "ninja-socks".
Tabi are traditional Japanese socks. Ankle high and with a separation between the big toe and other toes, they are worn by both men and women with zori, geta, and other traditional thonged footwear.
