What is “Teshigoto”?

Te-shi-go-to, pronounced te-shee-go-toh, is the classic tradition of handmade arts and crafts of Japan. The work of skilled artisans has attracted many people around the globe and increased their interest in Japanese culture. At the same time, “teshigoto” is deeply rooted in the life of Japanese people. We believe that teshigoto is so eloquent that it communicates with its users what Japanese people put value on. In our website and facebook, we introduce Japanese artisans in the Vancouver, B.C. area.
