However, there’re still many people who spend all of their careers carrying on the tradition. We’d like to honor them as much as we can. So I decided to create a series of video shows about them and their work from the footage available from my friends and myself.
Today, This video will be more attractive because I have edited the script, rewrote the content, new effects work, new music, new footage added and a new creation is created as follows: “Ancient Technology of Making Beppu Bamboo Crafts – Incredible Bamboo Woodworking Skills”
