I based on Fukuoka area during practicing period and opened own craft workshop in 2008. Now my home town “Chikuho area” is my base of activities.

I drew my inspiration for this work from excavated ancient articles along home town river.

“Tokinominori” (The gifts From Ancient Friends)

I love Kimono and Ukiyoe (Japanese woodblock prints). Ukiyoe is categorized as a beautiful woman doll picture. Their unique hair style is very common in Ukiyoe by the famous artist “Suzuki Harunobu”.

“Sakura mau” (Cherry blossoms fluttering down)
The 41st Yoichi art award

And I also love Buddha statues. The pictures and books that I have always corrected helped my working to make and dedicate dolls for the Iizuka Yamakasa Festival.


I can make an original work only for you.
The shape, color, design, putting a name, and shaping your birthday flower so on are all according to your needs. Please free to ask me.
