Not only is there no signboard, but the shutters are closed 2

Continuation of last time

This is a shop where only one of the shutters is slightly open.

Is this the whetstone specialty store you mentioned? ?

Entrance with shutters closed to waist height. When you bend down and enter the shop, there are whetstones everywhere!

When I called out to her, my mother came out from inside.

I saw a lot of things.

They come in a variety of sizes, from small stones to large stones, in various colors, and in various hardnesses.

Apparently, the owner, who was knowledgeable about whetstones, has passed away, and they are planning to close the shop soon.

The whetstone is made of natural materials. Each one is a one-of-a-kind item.

The amount that can be mined is limited, and high-quality whetstones are said to be quite expensive.

To be honest, I couldn't afford it due to the price, so I received a "finishing whetstone" which was a modest price. (Still, it was over 10,000 yen)

I still cherish it.
