50 YearsA dedicated craftsman gets no vacation, no retirement. Even when his hands are not in the work, the work is on his mind. What drives a craftsman to keep going for a half-century? The responsibility of passing on traditions, skills, and beauty to the next generation? The gift of seeing people’s smiles as he makes ends meet? I suspect that for Uncle Yoshiharu, a beloved tofu maker in Osaka, it was both. Uncle passed away while I was trying to make this video perfect enough to show him. Meanwhile, for 50 years, he achieved perfection with his tofu several times a day, six days a week. I’m sorry I was not able to share this video with him. But I am honored to be able to share it with you. In honor of this tofu maker who passed away recently.
