"In this day and age the world is overflowing with “things.” Being surrounded by so much, we start to forget the importance and value of the truly special objects and indiscriminately want to eliminate everything. But in the background of these “special things,” there is hidden culture, tradition, art, technology, as well as the hearts of many people who have been involved. Not only do we take care to create products of high quality, we value those hidden aspects and do our best to convey them." - Yamanaka Junpei 7th Generation Master
