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 “Moments of Open Eyes” in Berlin

After months of practice and weeks of preparation, finally we had the opening day of our exhibitionMoments of Open Eyes. 

Thank you very much for coming. It was a very good atmosphere. 



It started with a fanfare of a unique trumpet made by Wulf, one of the calligraphers and my students.


A small demonstration. “瞬間 (Moments)” for our precious moments to share. 


Beautiful Ikebana made by Klaus, another calligrapher and my student.
