Thank you very much for the amazingly fast and very careful delivery of my order. I love the Teshiozara bowls and the beautiful Tadafusa bread knife! And the Noda Horo vessels are so convenient anyway.

I have purchased from your website many times, and I am always excited to see what new items you have to offer. I appreciate the incredible craftsmanship of all of the items I have ordered. I use many of your items every day - Tsujiwa sesame seed roaster/copper tamagoyaki pan/Nakamura aluminum steaming pot/Azumaya rice bin/Tasafuda bread knife, and I love the care and handmade quality that brings me joy every time I use them! Thank you! I look forward to using the Sawara bath chair and tub. My husband is building a Japanese bathroom, and we ordered a hinoki furo from Japan. We are excited to have the bath chair and tub made with care by the Yamaichi craftsmen! They are beautifully made. Thank you for enriching my life every day!

Well received the products. They look good. Except the wood grain of the wooden bowl is different from my expectation. I understand the wood grain is difficult to control. So it's Ok. Thanks for all your help!
