When CRAZY was 23 years old, he went to a stadium to hear a Japanese politician speak.
There were many speakers with many views about the issues of the time.
Before the main speaker began, a beautiful Japanese Black Pine in a shallow ceramic pot was presented to the audience.
It was love at first sight.
Not one word of the speech entered his mind. CRAZY was completely transfixed on the Bonsai. The next month he began an apprenticeship at Daiju-en (Bonsai Nursery).
In 2011 CRAZY was diagnosed with epilepsy. He was 26 years old.
Prescription medication was suggested however the medicine had strong side effects and CRAZY decided not to use them. His sunglasses have proven to be the most effective method to control the epilepsy
As a child, CRAZY dreamed about traveling the world. In February 2013, he packed his tools and set off to share his skills with Bonsai enthusiasts across the globe.

End of 2016, My Daijuen apprenticeship was over.
Oyakata goes, “Enough”.
So I started own bonsai business in Japan on 2017.
Its not easy.
Some bonsai owners hire me. I go there with my bonsai tools by public transportation. I mean I’m working on not my tree.
This life style is exactly the same when I wandering around the world.
Making bonsai is not just styling, right?
I want to making own bonsai.
I want to watering and examination everyday to keep good condition.
Some Japanese bonsai master styling tree that bought auction. Then sale.
Thats good way to keep alive for Japanese bonsai master.
I don’t want to sale my trees in the future.
I want to working own bonsai to take whole my life.
So I want to make money without sale bonsai.
