    Very cool, Alan. I didn't know you were doing that kind of work. It's a nice skill to have. Congratulations!

    We still see them here in Japan all the time, they are often made from wood.

    Cheers!

    They eat a lot of fish

    I think they are called Irori, or Jizaikagi, I'd have to check.

    I've seen them in various forms, Fish, birds, bears, sake bottles, hammer, axes, carrot, Diakon, really depends on the area, some have certain regional flavours.

    Some pics...........

    About 95% of all I found on the web were fish

    If you feel a need to have it used in the original way, e.g. for cooking over open fires, I will be happy to utilize that way for you. As an historical reenactor, at events everthing we wear, use or do is authentic pre-1840. Cooking over an open fire is as natural to me as today's teens popping corn in a microwave. Just send, later I'll show a picture of some of the cooked food.
