The Skirret

The Skirret website is a repository for articles, essays, papers, and documents of Masonic interest.

It has its origins in websites created for the two Masonic lodges in Yokohama, Japan:

  1. Lodge Star in the East No. 640 (Grand Lodge of Scotland)
  2. Far East Lodge No. 1 (Grand Lodge of Japan)

In 2004, a test site was created for the three Scottish Masonic bodies in Kobe, Japan:

  1. Lodge Hiogo and Osaka No. 498
  2. Kobe Royal Arch Chapter No. 229
  3. Kobe Cryptic Council No. 229

In 2006 the present domain was registered to provide a permanent home for the Kobe websites, backup and expansion space for the Yokohama sites, and an archive for a rapidly growing collection of Masonic papers and other materials.

In 2012 the webmaster resigned from the two Yokohama lodges and their websites are no longer mirrored on the Skirret.
