Hello internet friends,

I’m finishing up a great assignment in Hawaii and will take the opportunity to take a few weeks off in Japan while I’m out here in the Pacific before I head back mainland. I’m interested in take a few tours of some workshops or museums while I’m there. Is anyone familiar with any wood-related attractions over there? I’ve found only one so far: Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum. Thanks!

-- Brent,

If you are in Pennsylvania, George Nakashima’s family has tours through his old home and workshop.

So are you leaving Hawaii?

Monte – yep… It’s time to leave Hawaii. I’ve had a great time here but it’s time to move on. Can’t wait to be back on the mainland: more tool options, more wood options, and more chances to learn something.

We plan on spending most of our time outside of Tokyo, mainly in Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. Been looking forward to it for a while.

-- Brent,

Have your say...
