  1. Nobody is willing to pay the hourly rate for that kind of craftsmanship. That kind of workmanship is to be passed on to the generations to come. Both how to do it and how to appreciate it.

    They knew to make buildings to be like puzzle pieces so they can be easily repaired.

  3. It’s a Chinese technique called 榫卯(sǔn mǎo), people started to use it 2500 years ago and its the major jointing technique of Chinese wood pieces, either small or big. Most of ancient wooden buildings and towers use this technique. It’s not responsible to say that Japanese people invented it, when they actually borrowed it, just like their characters.
    There’s an app called 榫卯(wood joints) made by Chinese people that shows how the entire thing works with fascinating 3D models to check out

  4. That's incredible, and since Japan is on the Pacific Rim of Fire, similar construction on stone only buildings will fuckin crumble in only a few years because of the intense earthquakes. They thought of everything these ancient builders.

  5. Japan has preserved an invaluably priceless array of carpentry techniques and fantastic wooden objects. I have an intense admiration for Japanese crafts and culture. 🏯 🎄

    I have been doing carpentry in the US for years…I would love nothing more than to go to Japan and be taught some REAL stuff from the master carpenters over there, like everything else they turn it into an art form. And to do most of that with hand tools and end up with CNC level precision is just crazy.

  7. Any other civilisation that had an extremely limited access to iron and metals in general: *gets stuck in technological advances"

    Japan: "Hold my carpenter skills"

    It's so satisfying to watch when the woods are put together. It's like a jigsaw puzzle that fits perfectly together!

  9. I think the Japanese people do not know but in real this technique is INDIAN temple making tachnique, we have "Champaner" A Unesco site with block technique marbles…🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳

  10. Japan is truly a beautiful country. I had weeaboo friends in middle school and never understood their obsession. Still don't understand anime tho

  11. In Japan, heart surgeon. Number one. Steady hand. One day, Yakuza boss need new heart. I do operation. But, mistake! Yakuza boss die! Yakuza very mad. I hide in fishing boat, come to America. No english, no food, no money. Darryl give me job. Now I have house, American car, and new woman. Darryl save life. My big secret: I kill yakuza boss on purpose. I good surgeon. The best!

  12. Japan, an ethnocentric nationalist nation where culture and tradition is kept. Unlike many current Westerners who have become slaves to dark foreign social political ideologies and are self destructive

  13. wood buildings need repair every 150 to 200 years, not in Australia.
    BTW whats the point of all these advancement in tech when your nation is on the brink of getting extinct.

  14. Malay people in Malaysia have this technique too, but many of the buildings built with this technique have been demolished to allow modern buildings being built. Salute to these Japanese that still preserve their old wooden building.
