What’s UMIDOKO

The Shinkiba UMIDOKO project was started in order to tell a story.
Based on traditional “on-the-water” lumberyards, it is centered on building a new floating house,
and will examine new styles of “regional development”, “human development” and “craftsmanship”.

UMIDOKO PRODUCT

AWe will develop original products made in Shinkiba
as a part of an effort to make our town an even better place.

CANDLE – Shinkiba’s Japanese Wax –

Containers made from cedar, cypress, cherry, maple and oak are gathered from all over Japan. The wax is made from the fruit of the Japanese wax tree. The core and cover will be crafted from wood scraps. Thus, the entirety of the candle will be made of wood.

Cajon shaped food smoker.

We provide large size food smokers with different types of wood; Cedar, Cypress, Oak, Cherry tree, and so on. Also, we have smaller size food smokers, which can also be used for the installment, Cajon. Smallest size is for the individual use, if you would like to use it for everyday drink.
