Published on 06.29.2016 An introductory video of artisans in Yokohama, Kanagawa.
This video introduces the artisans of fitting doors and windows.

Joineries make traditional Japanese doors, paper doors, windows, and other important parts of Japanese houses. If a door has a dimensional error even if only slightly, the door won’t open and shut smoothly. A delicate hand and heightened skills are required.
These skilled artisans adjust the doors precisely with great attention to detail.
And they decorate the doors or windows with lace-like wooden parts called “Kumiko”. The finely delicate “Kumiko” is one of the artistic beauties of Japanese classical style
