Yuki Nyudo 雪入道のお話

“Yuki Nyudo(Snow Monster) ” is a creative craft made by Okui Mokkosha, based on the traditional oral stories of the Hida region.

It is made using wood scraps from the production of wooden ladles during the winter.

The wood’s grain and shape, revealed when split with a hatchet, serve as the base model. Tools like hatchets, deba knives, and saws are boldly used to shape it, finishing with minimal color to preserve the wood’s texture.

Each piece uniquely showcases the wood’s natural expression, resulting in a craft that embodies a natural form and a simple atmosphere, with a quaint charm resembling a lovable yokai.
