Kiba no kakunori (Kiba square log rolling) | | Kiba, Tokyo

Kiba no kakunori (Kiba square log rolling) | 17th & 18th October, 2015 | Kiba, Tokyo
17th & 18th October, 2015


The Kiba area of Koto-ku derives its name from the once prolific lumberyards and warehouses.
(Kiba is literally “lumberyard.”) Kiba no kakunori, or square log rolling, developed as a folk art from this unique background.
It sprang from the process of assembling rafts for transport, in which the lumberyard workers maneuver thick, massive logs with only a single fire hook.
Each year, as part of its residents’ festival, Koto-ku organizes this square log rolling at a pond in Kiba Park to pass down the origin of the name and the traditional culture of the area.
Why not join the event and witness the skillful Kiba raftsmen roll and ride the square logs floating in the water?
