Sashikan Kogei Workshop
Kumiko is a joinery technique that doesn’t use nails.
This technique is understood to have developed in the ancient Muromachi period, alongside the shoin-zukuri style of architecture, and is one of the traditional Japanese techniques employed in creating items such as windows and sliding screen doors, as well as the latticework of ranma-style screen windows.
In the workshop, you’ll experience one part of this technique.
