chin lanterns have a fairly long history in Japan - there is testify of them creature used in temples in the 10th centenary - and were used especially as a portable means of lighting. Only occasionally used inside, they customarily hung appearance a house, temple or commerce or else in the entrance, ready to be suspended on a pole and carried ahead anyone going out at night. Igarashi-san reckons that at one time they were so warmhearted used there would have been nigh 40 or 50 chochin shops equitable in Kanazawa. Nowadays there remain only himself and one other local craftsman in the commerce and the other fellow (Matsuda-san) has long since diversified, production traditional umbrellas his mainstay.
Making a chochin is a fiddly, fairly slight program despite the attractively simple appearance of the end product. And, when inquired what are the most major qualities in his profession Igarashi-san replies, his sunny eyes dead serious, "patience and concentration." The mean sized lantern according to Igarashi-san, at about 30 cm along, can be produced at a rate of about 2 a daytime by one male including most of the drawing. However some really huge ones have left the Igarashi shop over the years - his biggest was a matsuri monster measuring 5 shaku (1 shaku = 30.3cm in the antique Japanese measuring system) in diameter with one intricate year of the hare chart aboard it. The old lantern maker is realistic about the fact that human ambition cheaper, mass-produced, plastic covered lanterns these days - he even sells them himself - but he is confident in the knowledge that a well-made paper lantern is a lovely thing, superior in numerous ways to these garish modern impostors.
"You can fix a nice chochin," he tells us, "you can replace one rib alternatively nail a cavity in the paper no problem." "Plastic lanterns have no inner border and can't be patched." A paper lantern no material how well made lasts only almost a annual (normal prettiness namely all meteoric) though a plastic an might last double that and price half as many. On altitude of that, we as a society may have simply lost our appreciation because handmade merchandise. Price has chance our main motivation as buyers. We do no attention to understand how things were made nowadays, alternatively who made them, or another Igarashisan would be the prosperous brain of a necklace of marts.
The walls of the Igarashi Chochinya and his ready-to-hand album amusement countless monochrome pictures and press clippings showing a pride, broad-shouldered youth man with mighty,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], thick weapon and a fetching grin showing off elegant paper spheres with matsuri lights glimmering in the background. Humbly showing us them,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], his warm, friendly laugh only slips slightly as he tells us that he will be the last of his family line making lanterns here.
