Antique Japanese Beams

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Hamish Pidgeon, a New Zealander who has been living in Japan for the last 23 years. I live in Kyotango city, which is in Kyoto prefecture, Japan, with my wife and two daughters. I own and run “Asobi Lodge” here on the Sea of Japan coast, but that is not all I do. I am also crazy about antique Japanese wood from old Meiji, Taisho, and Showa Period houses and barns (approx 1870 – 1940), which I have been collecting for the past couple of years. Please scroll down through this page to find out all about these fantastic pieces of wood, and how you can procure some for yourself.
