Yoshitaka Ishidoh

Yoshitaka Ishidoh is the head of a blacksmith family carried through to the present day for 400 years. His family were sword smiths before the Meiji era and after the era, they started to make planes. He is a well-skilled and experienced blacksmith, who can distinguish temperature difference by checking the fire color in the furnace and his senses. When asked, if he inherited his skill from his families' genes or DNA, Ishidoh said humbly that his continuing determination to observe tradition (carrying on the torch) made him what he is today.
