“Made in Japan” is such a simple phrase yet it instantly evokes an image of exceptional design and high quality production for most people. That is because Japanese craftspeople are proud of their work and have faith in their products. They spend many years as apprentices to get their skills. After they master their craft,they keep learning and searching for more skills and knowledge. Their modesty and hard work are the keys to high-quality products made in Japan.
