Here’s a video from a Japanese show about people repairing old things. This episode features Nobuo Okano, a man who has been restoring old books for more than 30 years, breathing new life into a customer’s old English-Japanese dictionary for his daughter.

This is so Japanese, I love it. Thanks to photographer Valerie Chiang for passing this along to me. Watch the clip below!


(Skip ahead to 1:30 mark of the video).
