Genre: Documentary

1 x 52’

People in Yamagata take great pride in the craftsmanship that has been handed down for generations. This time, we covered 3 men and their unique techniques: Making traditional Shounai fishing rods made of bamboo, pottery bathtubs that look like they are from fairy tales, and lightings with detail-oriented woodwork made without using nails. All of them are very passionate about making their original and unique products. You’ll see why they are so keen to do their work, and also how charming they are.
