Came across this channel by chance, I was looking at an article about handmade 茶筅 (tea whisks) and I realized that it was part of a series! There is some really interesting stuff in here; it combines the thorough overview of the "How it's made" style of series, but instead of focusing on mechanical/automated techniques to highlight mass-produced items, it focuses on the bespoke, handmade techniques that make Japanese artisans so renowned.

Sorry there are no English subtitles unless you want to try to auto-translate closed captioning, but this could be useful listening practice for language learners. So which ones did you find interesting? Is there something you wish they would focus on for a future episode?

PS: I have no affiliation with this channel, just saw it and thought I would share.
