The Way of the Japanese Bath

The Way of the Japanese Bath

“The history of natural mud-dyeing is deep in Amami Oshima, and there are two reasons I do it myself. One is to tell the next generation that there is such a cultural history. Second, I want to do what I can with dorozome in a modern way. I think we will shift to natural things in terms of resources in the future, and we need to use it sustainably to convey it for a long time.”

“I want you to understand and be attached to the individuality of the natural tree. I create objects using materials that return to the earth even after it has been used for a long time.”

"Making these objects requires skill that takes decades by a group of people to perfect. It’s influenced by the place they live in and their ancestors—how this becomes a part of their identity and culture is valuable. For it to be overlooked or underappreciated to the point that it will be lost is really sad, which is why it’s important to preserve them.”
