I recently posted about Masami Sakakibara’s (AKA Tenkara no Oni) new English-language website and how it opened up a world of information to the western world. Well now, I’m pleased to announce that Sakakibara-sensei has agreed to do an interview with me! My first reaction was to send over a list of my own questions and just post his responses. But then, I thought it might be more beneficial to the western tenkara community if I opened it up to Tenkara Talk readers and get YOUR questions answered (not just mine). So, if you’d like to ask a question to the preeminent master, post it as a comment here. I will review all the comments, compile them, and include the top ones in my interview. Tenkara no Oni is a legend in tenkara and this is a rare opportunity to bridge the gap between Japanese and western styles of tenkara so your participation is imperative in writing the story of tenkara beyond Japan. I look forward to your questions and Tenkara no Oni’s answers. Please have your questions in no later than Friday October 12th.
