日本の左官文化・技術を海外に伝えている都倉達弥さん Exploring the World of Plastering, Tatsuya Tokura

6月5日に都倉達弥という若い左官職人にはじめて会いました。後輩の齊藤さんから紹介をいただきました。都倉さんは先月海外から帰ってきて、約一年間、ヨーロッパやアフリカにある11カ国の国で仕事をしました。これからも海外での活動を期待しています。
June 5th met with Tatsuya Kokura, a young sakan craftsman originally from Tokyo but trained with Harada-san in Oita Prefecture for 5 years.  Last month Tatsuya returned from a year abroad, having worked in 11 countries in Europe and Africa. He's now collecting his travels into a book and next month will travel to Kyoto to go deeper in Japan's plastering tradition. I look forward to his next report!

Hello Peter,
Tatsuya is a great guy, and good friend. I'm supposed to help him with a plastering event in Tokyo June 29-30. I hope he's back in Japan by then. How was the course in Slovakia?
