Even today, Japanese carpenters have preserved an ancient art by constructing wooden buildings without using a single nail. With their unparalleled precision, they assemble the beams and planks with perfection to build houses having durable perfection. We make you discover the talents of these amazing artists.
Respectful of their ancient traditions, the artists shown here are a part of the Kenkou Kobayashi group. They are masters in the art of sculpting and perfectly nest together different pieces of wood to make building without nails. There are several carpenter families in Japan, each with its own traditional techniques.
This construction technique is really amazing! We never imagined it would be possible to build wooden houses without using a single metal nail. In writing, we would love to live in one of these fully assembled houses, why not in Japan: P. Would you be willing to live in a house built in this manner?
