If you break a dish what do you do with the pieces? Toss them in the trash and buy something new? Even if it was your very favorite? Not in Japan, we don't! Repairing what we love instead of throwing it away is a longstanding Japanese tradition. In this episode we're taking a look at how this tradition lives on today! We love a history lesson, here at Kawaii International, especially when history is as beautiful as this! Here's a shining spoiler: there is gold involved.
