A fukiya consists of a 4 foot tube blowgun, with darts (Fukibari) traditionally around 2 inches in length. The Fukiya has no mouthpiece: instead, users wrap their lips around the pipe

The range of a Fukiya is determined by size (diameter), weight, length and material of its basic component, the tube. Pressure built up in the tube from the player's breath and the technique that the player uses to channel the breath into the tube affects the speed that the dart will exit the 'muzzle'.
