This is the online store for "TAKUMI - Master Artisans of San-in -" a program that closely follows the craftsman of San-in as they challenge new possibilities while passing on their traditional skills.
The San-in, which straddles Tottori and Shimane prefectures in western Japan, is blessed with rich nature and natural resources, and has nurtured numerous handicrafts along with its culture and history since ancient times.
But with the changing times, there are many traditional crafts that are being lost today.
In this issue, we take a close look at the Master Artisans of San-in, who are passing on these precious traditions to the future and taking on the challenge of further evolution.
Through the use of video and photographs, you can select products with a sense of realism as if you were actually visiting the manufacturing site.
The interviews with the artisans are also a must-see!
