Roughly 70% of the land of Japan is covered with forests, providing an abundance of materials for carpentry and woodwork. Traditional woodworking involves a variety of techniques, such as wood bending, carving, and joining without nails to make furniture and other wooden objects. Japanese woodwork is highly appreciated around the world for its superlative craftsmanship. Major woodworking regions have facilities where visitors can try making a small piece of woodwork. If you want to see a gigantic piece, I’d recommend you go to the new Japan National Stadium in Tokyo, which is filled with elements of traditional Japanese construction and aesthetics associated with wood.
