Kunio Nakamura is trained in the traditional Japanese art of pottery repair, known as Kintsugi. Through his twitter account, Nakamura offered his services to those wishing to repair their cherished family heirlooms. Nakamura travelled throughout the badly affected area of Kumamoto, offering repairs free of charge. When repairs weren’t possible, he offered new solutions.
