Currently working at Yamanami Studio (Shiga Prefecture)

Born in 1970, lives in Shiga Prefecture, and has been a member of Yamanami Kobo since 1989. Most of his works are based on his own experiences. Animals and amusement parks he saw on school trips, a basket full of sweet potatoes harvested from farm work, his favorite balloons and crayons. The fish he often draws are probably the fish he saw in the fresh fish section of the store at his home when he was a child. At the time, his parents ran a supermarket as a family business and were very busy every day, so he was always alone. One of the things he was passionate about at the time was drawing. That feeling hasn't changed to this day. The flowing lines and vivid colors he draws are the same as the pictures he drew on the walls of his home when he was a child.
