Kyouji's technique which continues from the Nara era (710)

Hyakutaro Ooiri founded in 1951.

"Kyouji" is an expert of Japanese traditional artists who continue from the Nara era (around the year 710). Even today, old books are still present in museums and historical materials museums because there are cultures that use one thing for a long time in Japan and Kyoji's technology. Kyouji's technology is utilized to restore and preserve valuable cultural assets, enabling books to be handed over beyond generations.


The real item is the most bad condition at the moment of completion

In the present age, goods are the ones in which new goods are in the best condition, and deterioration progresses gradually. However, in Japanese culture, goods that are used for a long time, familiar with the hands of users, and have a depth like "age-old" are considered the best. Those that are cheaply made in large quantities, the finish is the most beautiful and the rest will only be damaged. What is really good is a state where the finish is the worst.

Becoming familiar, more beautiful, getting better while being used. The Japanese book Kyouji hands also gets deeper by the number of people looking at it.

"Yachiyo Tsuzuri" is a photo book that can not fade for 1000 years, co-developed by Kyouji with such technology and "Taki Products", a product design company that works on the theme of "making you want to tell people".
