50年以上書をやっているのですけどね、初めてお参りしてきました。東福寺の筆供養に。

<このサイトのホームへ。>

It was my first time to attend this ritual. I have been practicing calligraphy more than fifty years, though.

We have a traditional thinking that we should show appreciation to well-used tools, such as chasen or tea whisks used in tea ceremony, needles and brushes.

The photos show the ritual held annually in Tofuku-ji Temple.

According to our way of thinking is; to show thankfulness, we burn the tools in a sacred flame for them to be purified and go aloft.

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
