Odawara Hakone "Yosegizaiku Project"
 
Matsuya Ginza Design Gallery,
Tokyo, Japan
Yosegi (mosaic woodwork patterned) crafts from Odawara and Hakone have been beloved souvenirs of the Hakone region since the Edo period. This project combines the skillful techniques and wisdom that have been passed down through generations of craftspeople with modern, internationally-minded items made by contemporary young craftsmen who draw upon hundreds of years of history. It is also an attempt to transform high-quality sensibilities into a local brand.
