For the majority of my woodwork pieces I use mulberry wood from Mikura Island, which is very typical of Edo sashimono (joinery). In keeping with the original Edo sashimono techniques, and the old saying, I use the right mortise for the right section, and my basic idea is that by carefully selecting a variety of precious woods I create craft pieces giving a relaxed feeling and bringing comfort to people’s daily lives.
