The site is a Blog, web info space about Japan that focuses on the interview process. The site; PingMag Make, says they focus on the rural sites and people who are the heroes and gives us an opportunity to learn about them in the interview.

Lets go! Looks like a great place

This is a direct link to the interview about the man with the cool stone yard. Looks like a destination place for all of us who are really into stone . . .  aren’t we all?

  1. Great link.

    How interesting that Sato Teiseki ten has come to the point of feeling for stone. While money (income) is important, the feeling for the work is a gift given to us.

    The guys work work with stone all the time talk about stone the same way . . . “if you listen to the stone it will tell you where to put it or what to make of it” . . . I hear this all the time from these guys no matter their style, or where they are in the World.
