The "Kumiko" woodwork technique was developed in Japan in the Asuka Era (600-700 AD). Tanihata uses this technique to manufacture Ramma for room dividers and sliding doors. Wood chips are thinly and precisely shaved then carefully assembled chip by chip to construct Kumiko Ramma, Japanese-style screen and partition.

Visitors can experience assembling the "Kumiko" in Toyama Factory.
