Jun moved from Tokyo, Japan to Sydney, Australia in the mid 80', but it was much later until he fell in love with the art of Kinstugi in the mid 2010's where he returned to Japan to pursue more knowledge in the art of Kinstugi.

Since 2015 he has learnt the art from five different masters of the art in Japan. He has now come back to Sydney Australia to teach everyone of all ages wishing to learn and develop their skills in Kinstugi.

He founded Kintsugi Australia in 2018 to spread the knowledge and beauty of kintsugi to Aussies and the world.

I broke a precious Spode dish and, rather than try and have it repaired by hiding the fracture, a friend told me about Kintsugi. I decided on Jun because he had so many great reviews on the web. I have just had my first (private) class with him in the traditional method and loved it. What gracious people he and his wife Hitomi are. The studio is small but Covid safe. Jun is a natural teacher: he paced the class very well with step by step instructions and just the right amount of help from him balanced by doing it by myself. The whole 2 hour experience felt like a meditation class becuase of the calming approach taken by Jun and the underpinning Kintsugi philosophy (which he takes time to explain in the class) - that it is in the imperfect that we find perfection. So rushing is antithetic to that philosophy. Taking my time and working slowly; lovely music playing in the background; a break with a cup of green tea and a green tea Kit Kat. What a wonderful experience. My dish has reached the first stage and is now resting in its humidity and temapertaure controlled spot in the studio. I'm back in a week to do more. Can't wait!

Jun was through in explaining the process and options up front. You get to work in a very relaxed and friendly environment. I really enjoyed the first session and am looking forward to the 2nd task next week!

This was my second class and I enjoyed it just as much as the first! Jun and his wife are so encouraging and positive and it’s a pleasure to be taught by them.

Wonderful to repair an old family piece of ceramic using an ancient craft. I love the philosophy behind kintsugi. The class has a calm, gentle, focussed energy and the time just flies. I loved this class!
