It introduces very basic but not well-known knowledge about Japanese traditional art which will enhance your enjoyment of the art and future museum visit. Please bookmark and enjoy reading with my illustrations.




I am an art and culture expert with the national qualification for art curator in Japan and have over 14 years of experience in writing and translation. I worked for a global company making audio guides for museums and historical sites for six years, and have worked as a freelance writer and translator.


My work experience covers a wide range of areas such as Japanese Traditional Arts and Cultures (Nihonga, Sumie, Ukiyoe and more), Buddhism and Shintoism Arts, Calligraphy, Archaic Civilizations, Western Classical and Modern Arts, Contemporary Arts, Ceramics and Photography.
