KAI, the history of cutlery.

KAI, the history of cutlery.

KAI is a company that currently manufactures, sells, exports and imports more than 10, 000 different kinds of cutlery and cutting tools, ranging from kitchen utensils to cosmetic accessories and surgical implements.
KAI started in 1908 as a small pocket-knife factory in the city of Seki, which is known in Japan as the City of Good Swordsmen.
Even though the company has become large, one principle, nokaji (blacksmith)'s spirit, has been consistently upheld by KAI. "The nokaji strives to make blades that are suited to the daily lives of people by bringing to bear on the task all his craftsmanship and all his heart."
KAI is to find an answer to the question: "how can we bring the spirit of the nokaji into the 21st century?"

Event tradition of Nara in Japan. (Prescribed burn of Wakakusa)

Mount Wakakusa (Wakakusa-yama), also known as Mount Mikasa (Mikasa-yama), is a 342 m (1,122 ft) high mountain located in Nara, Nara Prefecture, Japan, to the east of Nara Park.
On the fourth Saturday of each January, the dead grass of Mt. Wakakusa is burned in an annual festival known as Yamayaki (literally "mountain roast"; common translation: "prescribed burn").  The tradition supposedly originated from a boundary dispute between two temples, Todai-ji and Kōfuku-ji in 1760. As the mediations failed, the entire mountain was set ablaze. Other explanations suggest the extermination of wild boars or pests as a result. The festival today begins with a ceremonial igniting by members of both temples, followed by a fireworks display. The festival has been postponed due to poor weather in the past.
