How To Takibi Time

At Snow Peak, we're true believers in the restorative nature of Takibi Time. We feel that the most meaningful connections can be discovered through the simple act of gathering together around a good fire, even if you’ve only ventured out to your garden or patio. Here, we show you just how easy it is to create your own Takibi scene and restore a little humanity in the process with our iconic Takibi Fire & Grill.

Before you get started, watch our video for the step-by-step process of setting up your Takibi Fire and Grill.

 

What You’ll Need

 

Step 1: Crumple several sheets of recycled newspaper into a ball and set at the bottom of your fireplace.

Step 2: Gather up kindling. It will help ignite the fuel logs later in the process. 

Step 3: Arrange your kindling three or four layers high in alternating sets of three directly on top of the newspaper.

Step 4: Carefully ignite the newspaper and add a few more layers of kindling to the fire. 

Step 5: Stack two new layers of wood logs, two by two, and allow them to burn in a controlled manner.

Step 6: Continue building on the fire by adding in additional wood logs as needed.

Step 7: Leave enough space for airflow and allow the wood logs to slowly burn.

Step 8: Monitor, and safely stoke fire, adding some additional wood logs as desired.

Step 9: Enjoy your Takibi time! Bonus points if you invite your friends to join you. 

Step 10: Allow the fire to completely burn before attempting to extinguish. When you're finished, completely drown out the fire with water.

Step 11: Make certain that all wood logs and embers have been extinguished. Never leave a smoldering fire unattended.
