Another by Ryosuke is a person carrying baskets on a country road. "As modern industry develops, many items and crafts gradually disappear. However, some northern villages in Vietnam are still famous for maintaining their traditional craft, for example, the profession of making all kinds of baskets from bamboo for more than 200 years. No longer a livelihood, the profession has become an art," he said.
