Greetings on the launch
of ‘Future Masters’
Zipang Port Inc.operates the FIZIT (Products and Services) and FiZIP (People) platforms, which promote and match the best of Japanese talents, products and services to various operations around the world.
In the process, we have encountered many traditional Japanese crafts, arts and skills, and have been deeply impressed by the masters who have dedicated their lives to their craft.
In our beloved Japan, there are many skills that should be known throughout the world, as well as many great masters.
And under these great masters, there are apprentices with unlimited potential.
Under these master-apprentice relationships, apprentices who keep on passing on those skills are passing them to the “future” and evolving them, just as how DNA is being passed on from parent to child.
We believe that these young talents, who will make great strides in the near future, are the very “future” of traditional Japanese culture, of which we are very proud of and relying on.
Therefore, we at Zipang Port Inc.have decided to launch “Future Masters”, an English-language media that focuses on apprentices who have inherited and refined skills in various fields such as cooking, crafts, arts, skills and architecture, to share with the world their past, present and “future” visions of the skills that they are currently inheriting and developing.
We sincerely hope that “Future Masters” will reach the eyes and hearts of people around the world who are looking for good talents, products and services in Japan, and that it will serve as a bridge for the ‘future masters’ whom we are proud of as Japanese, to stay active on the world stage.
