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 kasagi and shimagi. sumitsuke“.


Since Kasaki is symmetrical, if you can mark only the right front, you can draw the same on the right rear, left front, and left rear.

At Suikoushya, we share traditional Japanese woodworking techniques and skills. Since it is a small group system, we will provide guidance tailored to each individual’s skills, from beginners to woodworking professionals. Please join us!
I look forward to sharing fine woodworking with you.
