New York Event Spotlights Japanese Traditional Crafts

New York Event Spotlights Japanese Traditional Crafts

   New York, June 5 (Jiji Press)--Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. held an event in New York on Tuesday to gain publicity for Japanese traditional crafts.
   About 20 items were on display, such as "Nanbu Tekki" ironware from Iwate Prefecture and a cushion made from "Nishijin-ori" textile from Kyoto Prefecture.
   They included a Nanbu Tekki iron kettle in the shape of an apple. "This is a simple design that can be made even by young people," craftsman Takahiro Tayama said.
   Picking up the kettle, a woman in her 20s said that it was her first time to see an iron kettle at close range, and that this was a perfect design.
   The Japanese bank held a similar event in Paris in September 2023 as part of a project launched in August that year to support the Japanese traditional crafts industry.
