We want to BRING MY JAPANESE WOODWORKING SCHOOL ABROAD so it is more accessible for the people who cannot come to Japan. By bringing the school to abroad, the physical barrier is removed, allowing me to share the skills, knowledge and joy of Japanese woodworking skills with more people from different parts of the world.
Please support a Japanese carpenter !
