I will be a shokunin of life.

With his help.

And hers.


The Japanese apprentice is taught that shokunin means not only having technical skill, but also implies an attitude and social consciousness. […] The shokunin demonstrates knowledge of tools and skill with them, the ability to create beauty and the capacity to work with incredible speed. The value of an object is dependent on a subtle combination of skill and speed […] In short, the pride of the shokunin is the simultaneous achievement of skill and speed. One without the other is not shokunin.
