The Hida region in Gifu Prefecture has some of the country's most extensive broadleaf forests. Here, local artisans with sophisticated woodworking techniques are referred to as "Hida's Master Craftsmen," a title that has been respected for 1,300 years. Their skills are showcased in the floats of the Takayama Autumn Festival, ranked among the 3 most beautiful festivals in Japan. These floats are crafted using Japanese wood joinery techniques and do not use a single nail. Join us as we examine the craftsmanship that interlocks with the Hida region.
