Artisan
Antique shop - Issen
Kohei Saito started the antique shop: Issen Aizu '会津' in Kitakata city '喜多方', Fukushima '福島' last year. Kitakata '喜多方' is in the Northen japan, and is historically known as the town of Kura '蔵' warehouse, where local people store everyday items in their household warehouse to survive their long winter.
