My personal information


  My father was an art teacher and my mother was a music teacher. I like teaching because I was brought up in a artistic environment. I taught organ playing at Yamaha music school until my sons were junior high school students. After I got a Japanese paper doll license, I have started teaching English teachers in Gifu and exchange students. Some people come to my house for a class from overseas. I was invited to the World Doll Festival in Dubai as an artist in 2008. I went to America to teach making cards with Japanese papers at a kindergarten and an elementary school. I also taught tourists from overseas how to make Japanese paper dolls at the Japan Festival in Hokkaido. I like meeting people from many countries and hosting people. Let me teach you about Japanese culture. If you have any requests, please feel free to ask me.

Voices of Customers


  Attending doll class was the most interesting hobby for me, whilst living in Japan. It was a great opportunity to learn something very traditional and very unique. At the end of a class it was very satisfying to see that I had made something that was so beautiful and that I had understood a little more about traditional Japanese culture and folklore.
