I went to Gift Show and visited Bisyodo counter. Adam and Ueda san. Actually, Bisyodo is formally Ueda Bisyodo. They have been providing hair to Kumano brush makers and recently began to manufacture own brand. My contact is Adam.This is the first time to meet Adam. I had thought he was an Australian for some reasons. Well, his email in Japanese is impeccable or native, and I met many Australians who speak Japanese very well. My biased image.. He is from New Jersey and a Polish descendant. As his grandfather moved to American from Poland during the war, we talked about the history, Chicago as a city of many Polish Americans, Schindler's List for a while. Not about brushes … So a Polish American works for a brush company in Osaka. He said the strongest language is Japanese. Isn't it unique?
