"Nakamura and I, Akai, are overwhelmed by the great honor you have given us. Our little piece of work with bamboo and paper is the first winner from Japan! It's almost too good to believe.
I wish we could be present at the announcement. Let us express our gratitude to you all.
I hope more people are interested in the long tradition of paper arts in Japan.
Thank you very much."
