Sakura Michi Keycaps
The Sakura Michi keycaps are a good match for the Cherry MX switches. The backlight is very bright, and the keycaps are double-shot molded, so they are extremely durable and scratch-resistant. Besides that, they have additional add-on keys and the coveted MX clone mechanical switch. The Costar does not have a metal stabilizer bar and a plastic holder for longer & larger keys, but they are still a great choice.
The Tai Hao keyboard has 140 keys, but lacks the 2 unit right Shift key. Fortunately, the Ducky One 2 SF includes one. However, if you don’t have this key, you can replace it with the “0/Ins” key. This won’t affect the color gradient of the key caps. Lastly, if you’d like to install the PBT version of the Tai Hao keyboard, you can replace the right Shift with a ‘0/Ins’ key.
The Tai Hao keyboard has 140 keys, but lacks a 2 unit right Shift key. This is not a problem as the popular Ducky One 2 SF keyboard does have one.

In the end, you can install the new ones on any Cherry MX keyboard.

This is another option for those who are not concerned with the color of their sakura Michi keyboard.
