A Wasen Modeling Wasen Builder

Chiharu Tao is a Japanese boatbuilder living in Onomichi, just outside of Hiroshima. I don’t know how much model building he does in comparison to his boat building now, but I got his photo from American boatbuilder Douglas Brooks. As you can see, his models are quite large and of a stylized type.

Douglas just sent me the photo from the airport. He’s current in Japan and on his way to his next boat building project. I am really excited to share it with you here.
