I am a Japanese swordsmith with a certificate from the Japanese government. I established my blacksmith, in 2004 after 6 years of training. My works have been successful both domestically and internationally.
I was invited to MIT which is one of the most advanced universities in the world. I was surprised because there was a smithy in the basement. "Why is there a smithy at such a place?", I asked. The answer was that all high-level technologies require low-level technology, and above every low-level technology there is a high-level technology. When the low-level technology is gone, high-level technology cannot be produced.
Then I was convinced that I have a mission to inform people from all over the world about the traditional technology from over 1000 years ago that I use to do my works. Because I utilize the oldest low-level technology in the world.
Let me introduce my lovely family. A beautiful wife, three energetic boys and the youngest child is a girl. A total of four children and one pet dog.
Every day is very exciting. You are welcome to come and visit me. My only rule is to drink alcohol every day. I love every kind of alcohol, especially beer. Among them IPA and Yale are the best. If you bring them to me as a souvenir, my heart will burn up to its maximum. Like a steel that turned red.
Thank you for reading to the end. I am waiting for you at Asano Kajiya.
