Chilchinbito

Winter & Spring, 2000

This lifestyle and architecture magazine covered our thatching project just before I moved my family back to the US, after nine years in our traditional Japanese farmhouse in the mountains north of Kyoto. It was a shame to leave right after the complete remodeling, but my father had passed away and I was determined not to be so far away from my family and home culture any longer. Chilchinbito produced the most thorough telling of our story, in Japanese, covering the methods and the artisans for a general readership.
