WTF makes it cost that much does it give hand jobs and shoot beer out of the swallow tail?
Judging from the Gentemstick website, id say that the costs are associated with the manufacturer using money for 'inner peace' or some reallllllllllllllly good weed
The flagship shop°«s construction started in November 2003 and was completed in June 2004. The simple post and beam structure uses thirty-two 24cm square log cut from 30cm diameter Canadian Pine. The beautiful cross curve roof, rising up to 11m in height, is made by imaging the grand slopes of Mt.Yotei or the ground swells standing up when hitting the shore. The work was done by °»KAYA log structures°…, a local carpenter specialized in traditional architecture and log houses. Amazingly, the 32 logs were hand carved giving the best stability and a solid feeling to the structure. According to KAYA, this wooden structure will be standing up even after a giant earthquake that would knock all the other houses in Niseko down.
You can step up the stairs next to the bio-diesel barrel and go through the discreet main entrance. You will then come up to a tribal shield brought from Papua New Guinea back in the 70s. This shield was being used by a local tribe and is now placed here as the gatekeeper of the showroom.
The classic boards lining up on the left of the shield, each holding legendary stories are actually still very actively used today..... yadda yadda yadda.... youll see the line up of the surfboards shaped by Mr. Yoshihiko Kushimoto of °»Ki Surfboards°…; Long board, Rocket Fish, Glass On Shingle Fin, a 9°«6°… for big waves are there to see. Also the Semi-Gun shaped out of the image of the Gentemstick
The rack itself, casually displaying the boards are each different, all carefully hand crafted by Toru Kuwabara. The walls are covered with a white lime plaster made from scallop shells of nearby Uchiura Bay, giving the showroom a clear but sober atmosphere.
Last but not least, SEVs are located at the four corners of the house, water and fuel pipes, as well as both interior and exterior of our car. SEV is a metallic material that has a nature to refine the flow of the magnetic field and purifying the quality of the air of the surrounding environment.
