an idea and product created from life

My father was a carpenter and I was raised to be one as well. I was lucky in my early age to get a lot of work from […..] which specialise on making […..]. 20 years ago when my kids were still young I was celebrating a Matsuri and felt it would be great fun if the children could join the festivities as well, having spent many years making things in miniature the idea came to me to make a light-weight Mikoshi that would be safe for children to carry. I finished my first Mikoshi in [year] and now many years later I have made over …Mikoshi to be used in festivals all over the Japan – it brings me great happiness to see that our children can partake in our festivals from an early age so they can learn and preserve these traditions .
