Takayama Tea Whisks

木工品・竹工品

室町時代中期、高山領主の子息が、茶道の創始者でもある村田珠光の依頼によって作ったものが始まりです。

The making of tea whisks began in the middle of the Muromachi period (1333-1568), when the younger son of the lord of Takayama was asked to make a whisk by Murata Juko, who had been instrumental in perfecting the tea ceremony. Thereafter, the production method was kept a guarded secret by the lord of the castle and his family and was carefully handed down from generation to generation.

奈良筆

Nara Brushes

文具

奈良の筆作りの歴史は、今から1200年程前、空海が唐に渡った時に筆作りの方法を極め、日本に帰った後その技法を大和国の住人に伝えたことに始まります。

When the monk Kukai journeyed to China some 1,200 years ago, he made a study of brush making there and on his return, he passed on his knowledge to people living in the province of Yamatokoku that is now called Nara Prefecture. This marked the beginnings of brush making here.
