"The theme in my works is the Journey of life"

It is the boundless energy that is not second to even the realm of the universe
Extending continuously through time and form.

More numerous than the myriad stars twinkling in the evening sky
Greater by far than even the fiery sun.
It is hard to fathom this energy in infinite motion
Except to know that it exists in everything

And is visible in the all things in the journey of life.
Whether there is something vaster I do not know.

The wonder is that I exist now, here on this earth.
The wonder of things I see before me.
In the same way, the wonder of all human beings sharing this earth
In the same way I exist along with all other things.

One cannot help but value this life energy and wonder.
What will I savor from the next encounter in this journey of life!

I am on the journey of life and how I am moved by that encounter
I crystallized in my creation with precious metals.

Store & Workshop

We manage a simple metalworking studio in Asakusa, where the atmosphere of Edo still lingers. The studio contains a retail store, a workshop, and a classroom. Visitors can see not only the finished products and the way we work, but also people learning how to mold metal. They can even partake themselves. The studio is located on the second floor, so it might be difficult to find, but the space is comfortable and relaxed, so we think you will find it a cozy place.
