Broadcast on August 5, 2022 Available until August 5, 2025

Saito Masaya is one of the few artisans repairing stained glass in Japan. He removes the damaged sections, delicately replacing them one by one. Getting the same glass as the original is impossible, so Saito chooses the best alternative from his own collection. He also sometimes remakes the frames that hold the pieces he restores. He uses every tool at his disposal to bring it back to life. His passion for stained glass shines bright, illuminating future generations.
