HISTORY

Takano Fukyusai, founder and former president of "TAKANO CHIKKO", was the son of the shopkeeper of a bamboo-crafts store which has more than 80 years of history. In 1973, he opened an workshop in Sagano, famous for being a rich source of bamboo, all by himself. He started his business in his workshop with his family. However, as his business grew and the number of craftsmen employed by him increased, he decided to relocate his company to Nagaokakyo City, one of the principal production area of precious bamboo of Kyoto on a par with Nishikyo-ku of Kyoto City and Muko City.

Today, there are craftsmen who are specialized in various arts such as Sashimono (joining), Urushi (lacquering), Maki-e (gold-relief lacquering) as well as Take-kogei (making crafts from bamboo).
