Masako AKAHANE runs the Masako Workshop. In 2013, a friend asks her to craft a fundoshi (a traditional underwear for men) that would suit a woman. Ever since that day, she's been creating traditional underwears and wishes to spread her work across the whole world.
This year, she will come to the festival to present you her work at the WABI SABI area alongside many craftsmen ready to make you discover the wealth of Japanese folklore!
