(C)KOBE CONVENTION & VISITORS ASSOCIATION
Takanaka Carpentry Tools Museum is opened in 1984 as a project for the 85th anniversary of Takenaka Building Firm’s foundation. Kobe is the place where Fujiemon Takenaka established Takenaka Building Firm in 1899 after he left Nagoya where the firm was founded originally. Exhibitions consist of three themes, which are “pass down” (history), “create” (wood and iron), and “master” (expert) to pass the skills and heart of craftsmen to the next generation, and you can touch carpentry tools collected and reserved as an ethnical inheritance. Also events such as exhibitions, lectures, seminars and classes are held regularly to share with more people about the skills and heart of the craftsmen.
