Because we live in an era where we are surrounded by things, we can select and choose the product that best suits us. When you meet a product that is comfortable and meets your lifestyle, the experience of using that product in your everyday life makes one even happier. Through my work of selling Japanese handicrafts in FOUR DESIGN, LLC, I’ve learned that, the person who fabricates, the one who buys and the one who uses our products may be scattered in many places around the world, but still be all somehow connected by sharing the same feeling. From a far corner in Japan, I wish that all our products in FOUR DESIGN, LLC make the people who use them feel joyful and happier.

Joined FOUR DESIGN, LLC. in 2013 with the aspiration to assist many wonderful Japanese craftsmen and designers, not only sell their creations but to promote the beauty and joy of Japanese handmade products.
I met Taku in February of 2011 and then joined FOUR DESIGN, LLC since April of that same year. Presently, I am in charge of buying. My work is complex as I plan promotions with Roxana, coordinate with Hisatomo for logistics matters, discuss with Akiko to fulfill client’s inquiries and request as well as being a good listener to Taku, as he likes to exchange views about many matters. I adore milk tea. I also like Guatemala’s coffee as it has a nice sour taste. I also like digital gadgets and I enjoy music with anomaly rhythms.
