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 “How to draw a curve at Torii gate”.


There is a curve in the Torii Kasagi.

It is possible to calculate and create a beautiful curve, but I feel that a natural curve is more beautiful than an artificial curve.

I made a curve that can be naturally done by applying force to the stick.
