About Hida Mokko, Masu, and Aisome

Since the 700s, the Hida region in northern Gifu has had a reputation for wood crafting.
Handed down through generations, you can see the craftsmanship today in the ornate carvings on the floats at many of Gifu’s festivals, and in the traditional wooden buildings in Takayama’s old town.
Whether working with cypress, cedar or beech, they also use their traditional techniques to shape contemporary creations.
There are sleek lines of Hida furniture, kitchen utensils and much more. And it’s all made while ensuring craftsmen and forest continue to coexist.
Masu boxes are traditional Japanese measuring containers were originally used to measure rice, over time however, they have transformed into a popular vassel for drinking sake. During the Meiji period, a craftsman finished his apprenticeship in Nagoya and returned to Ogaki City to start making masu. Since then, the city has become the major producer of masu, accounting for 80% of all domestic production.

Watanabe Somemono Dyehouse still employs traditional techniques of shō aizome indigo dyeing, which uses natural indigo rather than chemical dyes.
Natural indigo has effects like repelling insects and strengthening fabric, therefore, aizome indigo textiles were often used for garments and furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth).
In the wintertime, when indigo dyeing is difficult to perform, Watanabe hand-makes Japanese carp banners that are to be used for the Japanese holiday of Children's Day in the spring.
A part of this production process includes soaking the banners in frigid cold water overnight to brighten the color, tighten the banner material, and wash off a naturally made paste that is used when coloring the banner.
