We would like to share a wonderful news that Tsune Fujimori will be presented with a medal from Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry in May 9th, 2007. She will be receiving a medal from the ministry, and both Minoru and Tsune will be traveling to Tokyo for the ceremony and to receive a word from his Imperial Majesty at the imperial palace.
In 1986, Minoru Fujimori had also received a medal from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (formerly known as Ministry of International Trade and Industry) and they both achieved this honor while they are still in a good health.
With their foresight vision and acquired techniques and the knowledge from their long experiences, they helped to derive the possibility and trade outlet of washi and served fully for continuation and sustainment of washi industry. Their idea and attitude toward the washi making are still fundamental principles of Awagami and the one of our basic concepts, flexible correspondence toward our customers' needs, has also come from their devoted ideas toward washi making and our customers.
On this occasion, we would like to pursue further for washi making with renewed enthusiasm, and we truly appreciate for our customers' continuing support and close relationships
