I just finished reading one of Todoroki-san’s blog post, dated Oct 20, about Gamakatsu Hooks.
I am also a fan of their S10-B hooks, and probably use them more than any other hooks. In various sizes; 12 mostly, but also some times 14, or 10.
However, that is the trivial part. Reading in the comments of the post, I see he had a some trouble following a typhoon. Some submerged agricultural equipment, river damage about 6km upstream and downstream from his home. But near his home seemed to be fine.
I was wondering if anyone has heard from Todoroki-san over following weeks, if he is ok, and if his community has adequately repaired the damage to fields and roads?
fwiw - his comment reply quote - to see what you can make of the sometimes weird translations;
