Kezuroukai in Takaoka
Kezuroukai means literally planing meeting, but besides the planning contest, many activities are organized. This meeting gathered craftman from various fields related to the temple renovation: sculptors, painters, wood turners, particular, ... and other more directly related to woodworking tools: a dai maker was present, as well as a "toishi master".
It has been several months since I didn't write. I am just back from a short trip to Japan, and am bringing back a lot of material to fill up a big post.
Topics which will be developed are:
- kezuroukai in Takaoka
- the use of electric tool in modern japan
- restoration of the Dog Shrine in Nagoyga city
- some woodturning
- daily life in a japanese workshop
