Dear Mr. Atsushi Yasui,
Have received from you a Kuroraku chawan by Shoraku Sasaki. I am very pleased with the high quality of the bowl.
Being a massproduced item (correct me if I'm wrong), it has retained its individuality and uniqueness. The glaze is beautiful, just a tiny splash of red to indicate a face or front, a credit to the potters skill. Not shure about the wooden box, was it made in Japan or elsewhere? The handwriting on it is excellent.
I am a student of the Chado and it is a pleasure to drink the green macha from it . . .
