An artisanal weaver in the third generation, a specialist of development of new patterns and of hand weaving. He manages the family Kasuri Koubo facility together with his parents and his wife. He is a member and an activist of the Kurume Kasuri Safeguarding Association. He promotes Kurume Kasuri also beyond Japan, giving lectures and organising workshops in traditional weaving.

Kasuri Koubo studio comprises the dye shop and the weaving plant. The threads are dyed manually in the natural indigo and with the use of chemical agents. The fabrics are woven either on mechanical looms of the Meiji period (the end of the 19th century) or handlooms. A fine cotton thread used in weaving makes all fabrics really airy. 

The studio has obtained several prizes and awards during the annual state contest and the fair of traditional artistic crafts in Kurume.
