Family History / ファミリーヒストリー


My grandfather was a Noh mask carver.


He had been looking forward to Introducing the appeals of Japanese culture to people all over the world. He conceived to express Cristian spirit in Japanese traditional art,therefore a new Noh program named “Resurrection of Jesus”was created. It was performed by Kuro Housho at Suidoubashi Noh Theater (Currently known as Housho Style)in 1954. I discovered the photo book of it in my parents house.


He was planning to present this event in Europe, however, he could not make it due to an illness.


I feel the blood relatives made me move to Europe for working. It is interesting if really so.
