Further Reading: Established in 1960, Tosaryu is located amidst the mountain ranges of Kochi, Japan. The woodworkers of Tosaryu have personalized the skill of handmaking, or “monotsukuri”. By utilizing the features of the Japanese Hinoki, they enhance the quality and function of their products. Wood is dried for 3 to 6 months before use which maintains the fragrant, oil-rich, and sturdy composition of Hinoki. This process allows them to create a variety of products from bath mats to incense. Using sustainable methods of production and in their careful use of local resources, Tosaryu’s mission remains loyal to the forests and lakes around them as they master their art of woodwork.
