@ Chotto Karakuri
We have started to create new works of "Chotto Karakuri" Series.
"Chotto" means "a little" or "slight".
The keywords are "Unlikelihood", "simplicity", and "low price".
The aim of this series isn't development of elaborate works.
We aim to make works we can enjoy willingly.

Hit Box

CH-1

You must hit the box to open it. This is quite simple, but it is also quite funny. At craft fairs, many people felt that Karakuri Boxes were difficult to open. Therefore, this was designed. For a long time, the craftsman continued making it in secret, because, other craftsmen in our group were trying to create special works, too. This is a new specification. The surface painting is an goil finishh.
