This craftsman walks around the city offering his services in repairing wooden "geta" clogs, supports for clogs, and thongs. He carries his tools, like a hatchet, plane, and chisels, in a tool box hanging from a balancing pole. His hair is combed in typical craftsman's style, and he wears a "hanten" coat, gaiters and straw sandals. This is a studio photograph.
