Master K reports in his ”Meetings with remarkable men”:
”I then ask [Arisue Go] which of his many ’model books’ does he prefer? (…) Without thinking, Arisue replies that his favorite model book is ’Ambient M’ featuring the model Toyota Maho. I agree. This beautiful book from 2000 by the gifted photographer Anju really is a stunner. The color photography is lush and impressive and beautifully conveys Toyota’s delicate, waifish beauty. I ask Arisue about the kinbaku and he replies that doing it was satisfying but very challenging because the model was not really capable of withstanding much forceful, ’real’ tying.”
