If you ask about Kuwana, the man, there are probably not many people who will know him.
I bought a pair of shoes from his collection (he selling some RTW) and Bic Pentameter in Tokyo did the actual transaction. I'm sure Bic would have loved to visit him, see his collection and talk to him about shoes. But it was not to be. The whole deal went through via e-mail, bank transfer and parcel service.
