Q: I suddenly have something to go to nearby, can I contact you on the day and see the shop?

​A: We produce at our workshop on weekdays and every other Saturday, so it is almost possible to visit our shop on the same day. Please call us.

With P. ・A 13-minute drive south will take you to the World Heritage Site Byodo-in Temple, famous for its picture on a 10-yen coin, and the National Treasure Ujigami Shrine, which is said to be the oldest remaining shrine building in Japan from the late Heian period. ・13 minutes by car to the north ``World Heritage Daigoji Temple'' A five-storied pagoda designated as a national treasure and the oldest wooden structure in Kyoto Prefecture. It was built in 952 during the Heian period. A 1000 year old woodwork made by human hands. I'm overwhelmed. Daigoji Temple in Kyoto, Horyuji Temple in Nara, and Rurikoji Temple in Yamaguchi Prefecture are said to be ``Japan's Three Great Pagodas.'' (Supplementary note) There are nine five-storied pagodas designated as national treasures in Japan. Of these, the five-storied pagodas that were built more than 1,000 years ago and still exist are: Daigo-ji Temple in Kyoto City, Horyu-ji Five-storied Pagoda in Nara Prefecture (built in the Asuka period 1,400 years ago, then rebuilt after disappearing around 1,300 years ago), and Nara Prefecture. The five-storied pagoda of Muroji Temple (built 1220 years ago during the Heian period) (rebuilt after being damaged by a typhoon in 1998) (Existing or rebuilt, either way it's an amazing woodworking time machine.)
