1980 Born in Nagano,Japan

 

1997 Quitted a high school without being able to be familiar with the organization. Went to Tokyo,and I was running for my life.

 

1999 Traveled India alone for the first time,first trip abroad.

I was shocked that I witnessed many people suffering from poverty,

Dead people sweeping away by a river, and caste system discrimination.

But,When I visited North India,I was moved by the natural wonder and children's smiles.

I become aware of what the Nature is like first time ever.

After returning home,I read some essay written by Michio HOSHINO,and I was greatly attracted to First Nations people,Great nature and wild Animals of Alaska,and Canada.

 

2005 Found a woodcarving executed by Yukitsugu FUJITO at an Art jewelry shop. It was fateful encounter.

Started making money for find,and meet Mr.FUJITO in hokkaido.

 

2006 Went for a trip to look for Mr.FUJITO in Akan,Hokkaido.

I could find him,and studied woodcarving 2 years under him.

 

2009 Opened an Atelier and the craft shop in Tokyo.

Making works made-to-order mainly.

 

2010 Mr.FUJITO passed away suddenly.

I was saddened deeply,and I got his tools as a memento.

After that,I studied formative design under Bisyu Saito who is a famous netsuke (miniature carving attached to the end of a cord hanging from a pouch) artisan.

 

2013 Wanted to feel nature in our own backyard, I closed my Atelier,and moved mountainous area with my wife.
