Born in Nagoya in 1939, he entered his father Kano Mokumei's workshop in 1958 at the age of 19 and learned to make guitars. 1966, he became independent and started making instruments under his own brand, and since then he has been shipping high-quality instruments with great enthusiasm, making him one of the oldest veteran guitar makers in Japan. In addition to guitars, he also makes mandolins, lutes, and other ancient instruments, and is highly regarded in each genre. His classical guitars are characterized by a modest, even stoic tone, rich sound, and elegance, while aiming for a Spanish orthodox sound. The lineup includes a variety of short-scale models, especially in the 610-640 mm range, and is considered a pioneer in this category of high-end models in Japan.
