This is a model of a 15-foot fishing boat that was used on the Hozu river, northwest of Kyōto, Japan. The model is based on measurements recorded by boatbuilder Douglas Brooks, who built 3 of these boats over the past few years. Today, 24-foot fiberglass versions of the boat take tourists along the river's scenic rapids.

 

This model is built at a scale of 1:10 using Japanese cedar, or sugi. It is my second completed scratch built Japanese traditional boat, or wasen.
