Happy New Year 謹賀新年

Hello everyone!

I hope you all have started the new year with good health. I am so happy and grateful that my blog was read by so many people from all over the world. I’ve had quite a few inquiries and questions from outside of Japan which can mean that my aim to spread the Japanese carpentry to the world has been realising little by little.

I’ll keep my best effort to write about the greatness of Japanese architecture and culture as well as to keep learning others.

Thank you very much!!!
