Place of birth: Kanda, Tokyo

I've been making stamps since 2010.  After pursuing a sales career in several stationery and toy companies, I finally became a full-time stamp artist in April 2013!  Since then, I've introduced more than 500 unique stamp designs under my brand, "Keshigomu hanko acha."  Through dedication and practice, I've perfected my stamp carving techniques, which are recognized standards worldwide.

I hold private workshops throughout Japan, and I've been featured in many exhibitions.  These include prestigious events like Design Festa and Yokohama Handmade Marche, which draw over 10,000 people each 

And I got the design contract with world-famous UNIQLO in 2018.

橡皮擦刻章 acha

我從2010年開始投入手刻印章,當時的我前後任職於文具店與玩具公司,並擔任銷售。

在2013年4月,我放棄所有工作,正式成為一名全職的手刻印章藝術家! 至此,我建立了名為"Keshigomu hanko acha"的個人品牌,並設計超過500件獨特的手刻印章。

我不斷地練習在練習,致力於提升刻章的技藝,試圖讓我的作品臻於完美,讓全世界認識它、

喜歡它。

When I was a young child, my grandfather gave me my first stamp. 

It was designed with my name, "Asako," and he had carved it himself.
I still remember my excitement when I first stamped it.
I might find other "Asako" stamps, but my first stamp, which embodies my grandfather's love, is one of my greatest treasures.

This one-of-a-kind stamp gives me the strength to do impossible things.  It's been with me through the most difficult of challenges and the most rewarding of triumphs.  It reminds me about who I am, where I come from, and where I will go.

I will carve your name stamp with the same care and effort that my grandfather used when he carved "Asako" for me.  A hand-carved stamp is full of flavors and complexities that machines can never reproduce.  Your unique name stamp perfectly represents you; no one will ever have the same stamp, just as no one will know everything about you and your journey.     

When you use your stamp for the first time, take a second to remind yourself that you are one-of-a-kind.

I hope you'll experience the joy I felt when I received my first stamp.

年幼時,我從爺爺手上得到了人生第一個印章。

這是由我爺爺親自設計並且刻著我的名字''Asako''的印章。

我仍然記得那個滿懷欣喜第一次蓋印章的我。

我也許可以在很多地方找到其他刻著''Asako''的印章,

但是這顆獨一無二的印章充滿了爺爺對我的愛,是我最珍藏的寶貝。

爺爺的印章給了我力量,讓我去做我覺得不可能的事,

讓我渡過重重的困難與挑戰,並且得到信心與肯定,

同時也告訴我自己是誰,從何而來並且應該往哪個目標前進。

成年後偶然得知,爺爺有個夢想,就是能夠成為一個刻章藝術工作者。

歡迎大家進入acha的刻章世界!
