I am Takami Kawai, a carpenter in Japan.

I am currently working on a project to donate a torii to a shrine in Kyoto, and the whole process will be share for free.

If you want to learn more about torii production, take an online class.



I will explain how to construct a torii gate.

The theme is “About the type of torii gate”.




Torii have a wide variety of materials and structures, and each shrine has a different form.

There are over 60 different types.

Torii with distinctive shapes include the Sanno Torii with a gasp-shaped gable at the top of the horizontal column of the Myojin Torii, and the Inari Torii painted in red.
