My experience with Koji is that his English is pretty limited. He understands a little and doesn't speak much.
Good luck unless you can call with a translator.
Are his shoes worth the cost of a translator? Yeah... :)
I've posted a substantial buyer's guide to Hiro Yanagimachi on my blog, which might be of interest for some, especially since he will do trunk shows in both Europe and the US next year. Loads of pics from my visit in the workshop, the making of my MTO pair, and of the final shoes (some of which I've already posted here). Here's some of the pics from the workshop and the making:

Received pictures of my completed shoes from Yohei-san of Yohei Fukuda after a 9 month wait, like to thank this thread and especially @nutcracker for letting me know of this amazing shoemaker. Can't wait to get them on my feet
Amazing. It is possible to see pictures of them being worn? Pictures look so unreal...(in a good way I mean).
I've seen that these do it. Couple of places in Tokyo.
thanks for your reply. How much was that in hankyu and isetan men???
