I was born and raised in Chiba prefecture (next to Tokyo).
When I was young, I received training my mother, who was a calligrapher, and I became familiar with calligraphy.
I majored calligraphy at the university.
After I graduated from college, I have been involved in various activities related to calligraphy, such as managing a calligraphy class myself, teaching while writing books about calligraphy, ink wash painting (a form of calligraphy) demonstration, and many others.
My life is dedicated to calligraphy.
I am thrilled to be able to disseminate calligraphy as a traditional Japanese culture to the world.
