POP-UP FEATURE

Labor of Love

Water mills have been supporting the livelihood of Yame residents for hundreds of years.  Baba Watermill is the last remaining active watermill producing cedar leave powder in the region.  Takeshi and Chieko Baba are guarding a family business, maintaining a historic asset and retaining the traditional way of production. 

 

NEW INITIATIVE

2020 is marked,  not by the Olympic, but by the pandemic. 

This year, rather than celebrating, we reflect on our behaviour and lifestyles.  

While Taketombo continues crafting responsible and insightful journeys, we are also looking into sustainable consumption.

What can we re-learn about comsumption through artisanal products?   

We have launched a pop-up called GOENNE.

Taketombo works to bring more attention and resources to rural regions of Japan.  Whether you are making a pit-stop in our town or joining week(s)-long residency, your participation will bring new energy to aging historic craft towns outside of metropolitan vicinity.

Ready for more beyond Toyko, Osaka and Kyoto?

We look forward to help you build the most creative and remarkable experience in Japan.

What impact will your participation bring?

ta-ke-tom-bo

We named our program after a traditional propeller toy hand-made in wood or bamboo, dated as far back to Nara or Heian period (8th century).

Our goal is to empower traditional crafts and let them take flight in the 21st century.

伝統工芸を発展させていくための新しい枠組みを提供し、

それを羽ばたかせていきたい「タケトンボ」には、そんな思いが込められています。
