Profile

I had been a sailor for 42 years and retired in March, 2017. I yearned for Shimoda wherever I go and Shimoda was the home port for my last ship. I have been absorbed in making rope works since I started my second life here in Shimoda.

Comment

I have opened a workshop to teach everyone about rope work which I learned as my hobby. I will teach you from simple way to somewhat difficult way in various practical knots. Especially my recommendation is a coaster with a variety of shapes and different sizes. If you try, it is fun to make. You can also make Misangas and dragonflies.

My recommendations

The most favorite place in Shimoda
Around Tsumekizaki. It is a very beautiful cape both as seen from the land and from the sea.

When I make a coaster, and if the central pentagon is placed in a well-balanced manner, it is my best !
