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 mark the line for different parts. sumitsuke“.
