The school Sosekido (素石堂) was formed by my sensei, Unkotsu Komine (小峰雲骨) many years ago. I was 13 years old when I first met him, and it was the beginning of my long-time calligraphy path.

Calligraphy Exhibition “Hyakunin Isshu” Opening

The 10th of November was the opening night of our exhibition, Hyakunin Isshu”. It was the second time we exhibited at Atelier für Photographie This year, we had a flower arrangement in action, a performance and a book presentation. 

It was nearly two years ago when I decided to have a Hyakunin Isshu exhibition and this is a “pre” Hyakunin Isshu exhibition. I still like to do my original idea but it was hard enough to carry out this project. So well done to all my students. We are five and each person wrote 20 poems. I have two 9 years old in my class and both of them made a big work.
