According to ancient Shinto belief, gods and spirits resided within the natural world inhabiting trees, rocks, rivers and mountains. To this day, ancient trees are wrapped with rope and decorative strips of white paper and considered sacred objects. The traditional Japanese buildings crafted from untreated wood and fitted with impeccable joints without the use of nails was born of this reverance for the natural world.

At Hida Tool, we proudly offer our customers top of the line quality Japanese hand tools. These are the same tools often employed by traditional Japanese architects, construction workers and temple builders. Many of the tools are still hand forged by blacksmiths using the same crafting techniques passed down through the generations.
