HIDA: A Woodwork Tradition in the Making

In the Hida Takayama region of Gifu prefecture, Japan, a woodwork tradition dating more than 1300 years has been passed on and continually refined, thriving to the current age. “HIDA: A Woodwork Tradition in the Making”, on show at Japan House Los Angeles, is an exhibition that explores the core of Japanese aesthetics and craftsmanship through the woodworking tradition of Hida. This exhibition explores the interaction of “forest, hujman, time, and craft” that gives birth to this craft, through the products of Co., Ltd., one of the oldest furniture manufacturers in Japan.
