Mumei-an, a Mobile Tearoom Showcasing Miyadaiku Carpentry
Miyadaiku are master carpenters who deal in the construction and restoration of traditional Japanese wooden structures, including shrines and temples, historic buildings, and sukiya tearooms. Traditional techniques used by miyadaiku have been passed down for 1,400 years. One of the world's finest examples of woodworking, miyadaiku craftsmanship has even been added to UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list. These prefabricated authentic tearooms incorporate the techniques of miyadaiku and are available in sizes from one to 20 tatami mats. The rooms can be quickly set up anywhere, even in conference rooms, and provide a touch of traditional Japanese aesthetics.
