This is no “tourist” destination. Tucked inside a studio neatly lined with his most used tools, the artisan transforms wood and earth into works of art. Outside, the historic charm of a quintessentially Japanese streetscape is painted with a wash of new color each season.
Here is where the artisan’s craft is born.
Step through the door that’s otherwise closed to guests and enter in for an exclusive talk with the craftsman and chance to take a stroll through the townscape.
Your travels here, even if just for a single day,
have linked you back to 365 days and even 100 years before.Each step will bring you nearer, connected as point along the way to the 100 years ahead.
The landscape is ever changing- it never remains the same. It is only by traveling to a place, by going there in person, that we can truly understand it.
