Kochi, Japan

I started to learn Kumihimo at Seijyu Kumihimo School in 1977 and exhibit my works at crafts exhibitions in and outside of Kochi Pref. in 1980. Introduction of Washi, a traditional Japanese paper and a special product of Kochi, to Kumihimo was made in 1990 as well as other materials such as wire and acryl fiber. I prefer using Washi. These works were awarded three times in the Exhibitions of Japan Taditional Art Crafts, five times in Kochi Art Exhibition, four times in Kochi Wimen's Arts and Crafts Exhibition and five times in the Exhibition of Shikoku Arts and Crafts.
