Hida-nai Takumi-ryu Daiku Himitsu Denju
Stipulates carpenter-related manners such as carpenters’ manners in Hida
Hida-nai Takumi-ryu Daiku Himitsu Denjun is one of the technical books for carpenters along with Hida no Mori Takumi-ryu Hiji Nukigaki and Banjo Torishimari Kiteisho, which stipulate master carpenter-style manners in Hida, and how to create curved lines, and serves as a valuable material for learning about the situation of carpenters in those days. Dates in 1713 are entered in the Hida-nai Takumi-ryu Daiku Himitsu Denjun. These dates are during the period when the Matsuda family played active roles. Currently, this material is preserved in the Takayama Museum of History and Art in Kamiichinomachi in Takayama, a facility that introduces the history, arts and crafts, and traditional culture of Takayama.
