" Yamada-san, or perhaps I should say Yamada Sensei, Thank you very much for your fast and careful attention to my order. I am very happy for your help it designing it. My previous hanko, a gift from many years ago was in a bag that was stolen, and it was difficult moment for me to accept that it must be replaced. However, you have changed what was at first a sad experience into one that is hopeful and joyful for me. Thank you for your time and effort, your care and craftmanship. The hanko arrived today and it is even nicer than I expected. Your workmanship is beautiful, and your packaging is very, very thoughtful."
Mr. Sumida runs a martial arts dojo "Ryu Dojo" in the United States. "Ryu" means "Dragon". He sent me a picture of his nice black belt. We sincerely appreciate his warm message. In June of 2021, postal service to the U.S. was resumed after being stopped for over a year. We are praying that the pandemic will be resolved and the world will return to normal.
