Tatami Culture with History
”Tatami is Bingo Omote and Koraiberi” this is a phrase referring to ”tatami” mats. That the best high-quality ”tatami” mats in Japan were the ”Bingo Omote”. The all too famous Oda Nobunaga also used ”Bingo Omote” for his Azuchi castle, and so did Toyotomi Hideyoshi for the Toyokuni Shrine.
Continuing to create by hand
Edo period ”tatami” was always hand-sewn. In modern times, the omote ”tatami” even in Hiroshima, with an exception of only a few veterans, have switched to automation.
