Parquet red stamp book

"Don't let this wonderful traditional technique go away"

Everything started from this feeling


Japanese traditional crafts are in trouble


"Hakone parquet" is said to have started about 200 years ago in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture.


It is a traditional woodworking craft that skillfully creates geometric patterns by gathering natural woods of various colors.

However, in recent years, the demand for traditional crafts has been declining due to the abundance of goods and the cheap and convenient mass-produced products.

If the demand for traditional crafts disappears, the number of creators will decrease, and as a result, there will be a shortage of successors.

"I have to leave this wonderful traditional craft"

There, a collaboration between Myorin-ji's "Designer Buddhist altar for monks [Myorin-do] " and Hakone parquet Buddhist altars began to produce unprecedented Hakone parquet Buddhist altars.

Two craftsmen


Designer Buddhist altars for monks

Representative of "Myorindo"

Myorinji priest


The chief priest of Myorin- ji Temple located in Oiso Town, Kanagawa Prefecture.

He is the representative of "Designer's Buddhist altar for monks" Myorindo "" and produces Buddhist altars exclusively for monks.

Currently, there are many requests for the production of Buddhist altars, and reservations cannot be made for more than a year.

From making Buddhist altars to opening eyes (putting souls).


Hakone parquet "Yu Kobo"


Yuhei Kojima


Representative of Hakone parquet "Yu Kobo" located in Odawara City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

One of the few successors to "Hakone Parquet" with a history of about 200 years.

Using the traditional craft technique of "Hakone parquet", he creates a unique Buddhist tool together with the chief priest of Myorinji Temple.


Modern to tradition


The design of Myorin-ji's "Hakone Parquet Goshuincho" is different from the traditional Hakone Parquet, and is designed by two craftsmen in a modern style.

"Do not make the same design"

With such a concept, we make a red stamp book with a different design each time and put a serial number on all of them.

Myorin-ji's "Hakone Parquet Goshuincho" is made entirely by hand by two craftsmen, and each one is praying for the physical health, family safety, and fulfillment of the wishes of the awardee at the main hall of Myorin-ji. Therefore, it cannot be mass-produced.

Since it takes many times longer to create a general red stamp book, we cannot deliver it to everyone, but we will wholeheartedly produce a unique red stamp book that will last a lifetime. doing.
