Banshu Kebari (Feather jig)
Concentrating all the senses and nerves into the fingers to attach barbs of several different kinds of birds around the jig (fly) which is just about a centimeter long with a silk thread, craftspeople make these beautiful illusory handicrafts to look just like aquatic insects. They upgraded the fineness of this technique which was introduced from Kyoto at the end of The Edo period. Today, the greater part of the domestic feather jigs are being produced here.
