The style involves crafting striking geometric patterns by assembling finely-cut strips of local wood such as Kiso cypress, Akita cedar and Nikko cedar. The art is thought to have originated during the construction of Nikko’s famed Toshogu Shrine, when craftspeople from all over Japan came together to share their expertise and techniques.

Today, kanuma-kumiko is used to decorate room partitions, shoji sliding doors and other interior features.
