We had a great time and he speaks very good english. It was 80% plus humidity and 30c + even at 8pm. So they were glad to have a shower and a bed as a break from the little camper van.He is a great guy and very passionate about his wooden board building.
Genki and I with the board he built in Paul's class.
If you are going to Japan, he woulkd be a very good contact.
