I was watching one of my favorite NHK tv shows that features various Japanese products, this one being copperware from Tsubame, Niigata prefecture. (Every time I watch this show I fall in love with a product and end up online, seeking a shop from which to purchase. This week was copperware, so I found Global and bought a beautiful copper cup.) I am so fascinated by seeing the superior craftsmanship that goes into making so many Japanese products. Thank you for being an outlet for people like me who love to hold these fabulous items and see first-hand how beautiful are the products of Japanese craftsmen and women.
