I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age six under the late Mr. Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks, fasciae for long-established businesses and so on. I am 65 years old, however, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. I am happy and proud to tell you that many people say to me "Your works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the someone dancing in the air and or something flowing on clear water". My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued practicing calligraphy for nearly sixty years to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise.
