The Curves that did not become Taiko
While the “Echo-logical Taiko” focuses on the utilization of planted forest trees that lost their value as a material and ended up being left alone, there are other timbers that lost their roles. For instance, there are a great deal of timber offcuts that could not become Taiko because of cracks and that are disposed during the manufacturing process: in order to utilize them, we launched a project called “The Curve”.
About the Edo Tokyo Kirari Project
Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten was selected as a model business for the Edo Tokyo Kirari Project which refines “Tokyo’s treasures” such as traditional techniques or old shops’ products of Edo Tokyo (Edo: former name of Tokyo), and showcases to the world their value and appeal. Through the “Echo-logical Taiko” project, we bring forward the implementation of a virtuous recycling society, by making the most of the forest resources and the craftsmanship.
