Traditions

Japanese woodcraft follows time-honoured traditions and techniques passed down from generation to generation.

We aim to give you as much first-hand information direct from the people that keep traditional methods alive across different regions of Japan. With different styles, techniques and tools for woodworking, the one thing Japanese crafts men and women share is a belief in the spirit of the wood they hold and craft in their hands.
