He joined a major music store in 2003 and worked in the repair department for over 10 years, where he had the opportunity to study many famous instruments from Japan and other countries, and this is where his sensitivity to tone developed. During his time with the company, he was introduced to the maker Kaoru Ono, and in 2010 he began receiving direct instruction at Ono's workshop.
