TOPICS for haiku

Atakemaru 安宅丸 Cruize Ship of the Shogun

- quote -
In the Edo period, many feudal lords in the Kyushu region are said to have sailed the Seto Inland Sea with 30 to 40 ships to and from the area around the current Yodo River in Osaka for Sankin Kotai (alternate attendance). Ships used by these lords on these occasions are called "Gozabune." These Gozabune ships with dynamic and gorgeous interior and exterior decorations were used as a private luxury liner by feudal lords.



One of our ships was renamed "Atakemaru" as a replication of a Gozabune boat in the Heisei era to offer luxurious cruising with a traditional feel to customers mainly from Tokyo (Kanto region) in the Tokyo Port.

Traditional Edo-era style boat takes the water

Japanese shipwrights have built a traditional Edo-period style wooden boat -- the first time in 16 years such a vessel has been constructed.

The boats, called Edo-mae wasen, were used as pleasure boats on Tokyo's Sumida River and elsewhere from the 17th to 19th centuries.

The boat launched on Thursday was built at the request of Koto Ward by a shipyard dating back to the Edo period. The ward wants the traditional craftsmanship of the shipbuilders to be passed down to future generations.

Koto Ward, which is flanked by rivers and faces Tokyo Bay, used to be home to many shipyards making the boats until shortly after the end of World War Two.
But due to dwindling demand and the aging of the craftsmen, few shipbuilders remain today.

It took the shipyard about one year to make the boat, named "Miyakodori", which is 10 meters long and 1.7 meters wide. The boat is decorated with copperplates.

Ryutaro Sano speaking on behalf of those involved in the shipbuilding said it was difficult work because no plan for the boat existed, but he is now happy they have been able to hand down traditional ship-building know-how to future generations.

Douglas Brooks Boat Building
traditional Japanese boat building
I build wooden boats for private clients, museums and municipalities. I specialize in American, English and Japanese traditional boat designs. In the case of western boats, my methods range from traditional plank-on-frame construction to glued lapstrake, and sometimes a hybrid of traditional and modern where I feel it is best for the longevity of the boat and the needs of the client. For Japanese boats, I build as accurately as possible, sometimes substituting domestic materials when necessary.
