【message from Rikyu】
Here are postcards and greeting cards
created featuring Japanese calligraphy:SHODO.
I try to express the image of seasonal sceneries.
Please enjoy the beautiful four seasons in the works.
I put my heart into making each piece of post card.
I send them to my close friends and persons I came to know from time to time.
Now that we are all in the digital societies, I cherish the true value of handwritten and handmade works and the warmth of analog.
From this year(2018),I started to hold a workshop for foreign travelers to Japan and foreigners in Japan (including Japanese people) so that they can enjoy Japanese calligraphy and understand Japanese culture well.
