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 really enjoyed attending the course. the teacher was very precise in teaching the technique, which is very complicated.
I can say that I am satisfied.
if I have to give advice, I think it would be better to have a bigger table to work better and maybe more days within a month, to learn the real development of this technique

Jun is an excellent teacher.
Traditional kintsugi is very different to modern kintsugi and a great skill to have, especially if you are a potter. I will also use this in my woodwork.
I am really happy to have been able to find and participate in this class and other classes at Kintsugi Australia.
I highly recommend Kintsugi Australia.

Learning traditional Kintsugi method is very enjoyable. It is quite a complex process but Jun sensei explains and demonstrates very clearly and provides comprehensive notes and guidance, so I feel confident that I can go home and continue to practice by myself, until I hav another opportunity to learn more. I am very impressed that Jun sensei was able to teach so much in just one weekend. Arigatou gozaimashita

Having always been fascinated by the philosophy of Kintsugi that something broken can be reassembled "to be even more beautiful” we made a trip to Sydney and enrolled in a 2day intensive course with Jun.
We had a fabulous couple of days - we were greeted with a warm welcome and our Kintsugi materials were well organised and waiting for us on our desk so we could get to work. Jun explained the techniques clearly and thoroughly and provided written instructions as well. He was alongside us whilst we worked giving us encouragement and tips along the way. We now feel equipped and confident to practice these techniques at home and are so glad we came and did the course. Both of us returned to Melbourne feeling refreshed and relaxed
Thankyou to Hitomi for her warm hospitality- we loved the Japanese tea and biscuits and laughing and chatting with you both throughout the course. If you love Kintsugi- we can not recommend this course more highly.
