There are many types of Tsukamaki. "One-piece fastening" is the only fastening method that was officially adopted by the Tokugawa family during the Edo period and has inherited the method of practice. And the method of fastening that Osamu Mitani has studied for many years, "double fastening" that was independently developed by each clan other than the Tokugawa clan. A technique that was created after the end of the Edo period, and is a more decorative winding method, "bellows closure." Mitani himself will carefully demonstrate and explain each method of fastening. In addition, various patterns, pattern wood production, shark skin dressing, pattern thread, and the position and insertion method of the eyes are also recorded.
