This paper will discuss Japanese women and their involvement with the traditional craft movement and production within Japan. In order to understand Japanese women and their relationship to this movement, one must look at the social context and historical placement of women throughout Japan's lengthy history. Starting with the Tokugawa or Edo period (16151868), a strong sense of proper place within society and community was instilled in men and women living in Japan.
