      Clan Yama Kaminari surrounds its camp with jinmaku every Pennsic. They work
      great. The clan uses wooden poles and welded rebar portable holes, but
      stores them at the campground so transport is not a problem.

      If authenticity is not your primary concern, probably any vertical pole
      will do. Maybe garden stakes like for supporting tomatoes?
      If you're worried about driving those into the ground, get shorter stakes
      (maybe 2 or 3 feet), drive those in, then tape or lash the longer pole to that.

      CYK has some instructions for making jinmaku at
      http://www.yamakaminari.com/HowTo/Windscreen/index.html . I think these
      days the sewn tabs at the top have been replaced with nylon "webbing"
      straps, though.
