Born in 1946 in Gunma prefecture (Japan), I grew up in Tokyo.
I started painting at 24 when I moved to Paris in 1971, then settled in Geneva (Switzerland).
In the early years of my stay in Europe, I worked at the ILO as Chief programmer. Concurrently, I was allocated a working space in Paris by the French Ministry of Culture and built my own studio on the French banks of Lake Leman (1979).
In 1981, I resigned from the ILO, to dedicate myself to painting exclusively.
In 1993, I took up residence in Auvers-sur-Oise. After actively pursuing my art in Europe for over 25 years, I had my first exhibition in Japan in 1999.
In 2012, I opened a new working space, in Paris and Kyoto.
Fifty years have passed since I came to live in Europe. I have been creating my work without ever studying art formally. I am sure this helped me to find my own style. Ten years ago, I decided to live in Kyoto. I am now living and painting both in Paris and Kyoto. Living and working in Kyoto made me realise that my style, although very simple and typically Japanese,did not exist in Japan until then.

Blols castle, Kodaiji temple in Kyoto, the City hall of 5th district in Paris: these are the historical places that represent their time. Through these expositions, I felt that the art paintings revive in the atmosphere and the same effect for it's space. I want to create a work of art which surpasses the time and the culture.
