  1. Dear friends, my name is Lee Lyle. I lived in Matsumoto, Nagano 1986-1988 while I worked in the local public schools. Several times, my wife and I hosted two young Mormon missionaries for food and conversation and moral support.

    While there, I had the great fortune to engage my passion for woodcarving (which I developed as a child here in Arkansas where I was exposed to folk crafts in the Ozark Mountains) under the masterful guidance of Akahane-sensei. I have long wanted to contact him again, all the more so now that I've retired from teaching high school here and have returned to my love for woodcarving.

    I now make and sell crosses with international and multicultural themes!

    Just minutes ago, I entered "Akahane woodcarver Matsumoto" for search words and up popped this site! What a blessing! Please help me contact the Akahanes!
