In 2009, he opened "Passage 53" in Paris. Shinichi Sato, who was the first Japanese to win two stars in the French Michelin Guide in 2011, has been awarded two stars for eight consecutive years. However, he left "Passage 53" for a restaurant aiming to open in 2021 and chose a new challenge. This time, Mr. Sato, who is temporarily returning to Japan, talks about the inheritance of Japan, France and culture from the perspective of cooking.
Sen Sosa, who took the name of Omotesenke 15th Iemoto, who inherits Sen no Rikyu's tea ceremony, is the relationship between curioswitch representative Chika and his cousin. A dialogue unique to two people who share a background, such as memories of childhood and Japan as seen from the world, has been realized.
Media producer Mitsuko Watanabe, flower artist Hiroko Takeda, and our representative, Konoe Tadahiro, have decided to work together for the first time, even though they are old friends. At the end of the project, three people gathered again to talk about their work, background, and Japanese culture.
The shoes inspired by Oiran's clogs by Noritaka Tatehana captivated Lady Gaga. About 10 years after that, Mr. Tatehana, who has been transmitting Japanese tradition from a unique perspective, was interviewed directly by formerly known curioswitch representative Chika as a member of the "Edo Tokyo Kirari Project"!

The third interview series posted on the POLA Traditional Culture Promotion Foundation 40th Anniversary website has been released. We interviewed Professor Mamoru Nakagawa, a living national treasure known for Kaga inlays. Kaga inlay, a traditional craft that has been handed down in Kaga since the Edo period, has disappeared once due to the difficulty of inheriting it. This is a valuable interview with Mamoru Nakagawa, who is breaking new ground in Kaga inlays by repeating his own techniques while preserving that technique, and approaching the past, present, and future.
