Their main business is bamboo wholesale store "Yokoyama bamboo shop" which has been established about 100 years. They handle bamboo products such as garden materials, tea ceremony materials and Japanese style furnitures made by bamboo with traditional techniques of Kyoto. They are working to inherit these skills and craftsmen to the next generation.
