"Society that protects production areas""Torigoe bamboo work" is now drawing attention as a rare folk craft. District producers are said to be one of the country's best producing areas, although it is less than 50 people, about 10% of the peak in the district. However, due to aging and lack of successors, maintaining production areas is a dangerous situation. As a person involved in the spread of bamboo craftsmen (former · director of Mogi Torigoshi interchange house) We have set up a "meeting" as soon as possible because measures are necessary. "Society" protects the production area while striving to respond to everyone's patronage, treasuring the spirit of folk art and the producers.
