Wakayama

I visited Wakayama, famous place in Japan for its cut&sewen factories. On the day I arrived, I visited Shima-seiki, very famous company for their original computer system knit wear weaving. During the day, I was presented by many presentations and gathered lots of inspirations, and for the dinner, Mr.Shima, the president, invited us to the dinner. It was a restaurant that Mr.Shima himself owned, very special place where takes only 1 reservation per day!
Mr.Shima is very fun man, the stories he told me were all so interesting. He`s so talented, such a special man! Thank you very much for the dinner.

I saw the Wakayama castle from the window.

The next day, I visited the cut & sewen factory. This is a photo of myself that was taken in front of the weaving machine. This is a special machine with leather ropes hung from the ceiling. It`s such a old machine that they have been using for a long time, there`s not much of the same machine left.
