There was no question Mikame was a great craftsman of quality wood apparatus. We knew him personally and when he started producing again featured his products exclusively in the States. We would meet with him every few years in Japan. In many cases he made substantial improvements with resepect to their design. Unfortunately, Mikame (to my knowledge), never credited previous innovators and crafters of the pieces he replicated. In some cases such details may be disputable, or even difficult to determine. But in the majority of cases this was not the case and his legacy would of been stronger had he made some efforts to do so.
