Owari Buddhist altar is a type of craft that has been produced mainly in Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture since the early 17th century. Using high-quality wood from the suburbs of Owari as a resource, we have developed this craft as a low-ranking samurai job.
Because Owari Buddhist implements are made by a division of labor by artisans in each manufacturing process, each part is highly specialized.
Why don’t you talk with artisans and experience the genuine traditional techniques that are inherited, and see how colorful and precise Owari Buddhist altars are made?
