Thank you for the other day.
It was the first time to make pottery, but I could make a good ceramic item with your kind support.
I’m looking forward to having my original item.

Thank you for today.  I really enjoyed for my second challenge of making pottery.
I love the item which I made for the first time and I use it often.
I am waiting for my second one to come.  Next time I want to make a big bowl.
One thing I was so impressed this time was warm water of the washtub due to cold winter.  Thank you again.

Thank you for kind support even though we were kind of “difficult” guys.
With electrically-powered potter’s wheel, I enjoyed as if I was a potter.
I want to visit again and make other items someday.

I really enjoyed making ceramic items without worrying about time limit.
I like the lecture theater because I don’t think of other people.
Thank you so much.  I am looking forward to having the item.

It was a great time with our company staff.
This was 3rd time of making pottery experience for me, but I was still not good at it.
However, I appreciate the kind support of your instructor and enjoyed the food menu as well.
I liked Chojifu so much.
