What you'll do
Japanese woodworking is known for its precision, delicacy, and beauty. My dream is to make Japanese woodworking more accessible to foreign people. I personally find great enjoyment working with wood, and I would love to share my experience, knowledge, and skills with the world. In this experience, you will learn how to use Japanese woodworking tools. I will explain the purpose of the tools and show you how to use them. After the explanation, you can also experience using the tools. *We also offer a full day course, "Learn Woodworking with a Carpenter!" (includes visiting tool stores and learning how to set up woodworking tools).
I am a traditional Japanese carpenter with almost 20 years of experience, and I run my own construction firm in Kyoto. I specialize in renovating traditional houses. My past work includes working for the Ise Grand Shrine, the spiritual home of the Shinto religion. I enjoy working with wood using traditional hand tools and Japanese joinery.
