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 show you how to construct a torii gate.

The theme is “How to paint a Japanese toriigate “


The purpose of painting the torii is to protect from rainwater and insects and make it last longer.

It is important to understand the climate, resources, and materials used in the area, to select the coating materials.

Paint is sensitive to humidity and temperature, so the timing of painting is also important.
