Purpose of implementation
This event is held on “Housing Day” established by the National Confederation of Construction Workers’ Unions (Zenken Soren) to help people learn about various things related to the houses they live in on a daily basis. The purpose of this event was to get people interested in the carpenter profession by allowing them to experience the wonders of building houses and the craftsmanship of craftsmen up close in the construction industry. Additionally, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, the number of workers in the construction industry in 2021 has decreased by approximately 30% compared to 1997, when the number of workers was the highest.*1 Furthermore, the construction industry is predicted to face an even more serious labor shortage than it is now, as many of the baby boomers working in the construction industry will reach the age of 75 or older and retire in large numbers in 2025.

The day consisted of two parts. Part 1 includes “Lessons about houses” such as the history of housing and the housing situation in Okinawa Prefecture, “Explanation and demonstration of tools used by carpenters at construction sites”, and “How to use saws” where elementary school students cut wood using saws. We had an experience. In the second part, each elementary school student assembled a wooden kit using wood glue and masking tape to create an original tissue case.
Comments from children who participated in on-site classes
Participating children said, “I learned that there are many different kinds of houses.” “It was difficult to use a saw. I want to cut better next time.” They assembled a wooden kit and completed a tissue case. Elementary school students made comments such as, “I completed my own tissue case by pasting lots of stickers.”
