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.

The traditional Kintsugi class was great. Jun-San is a wonderful teacher, he was very patient and helpful. I learned a lot about the history of Kintsugi and how it has been used over the years. The method of repairing turns out a beautiful plate I am very proud to bring home and use on special occasions.

I took my first Modern Beginner Kintsugi class on Saturday and enjoyed it so much that I immediately enrolled in this Traditional Kintsugi Basic course. I love how Jun-san shares the philosophy behind kintsugi, as well as the techniques. This is better than therapy!

Michael Minsky • May 2020

I had a fantastic time in the Kintsugi course. Jun-sensei is a wonderful teacher, and he takes the time to explain not just the techniques, but the history and cultural influence of kintsugi as well. It was amazing to be able to remake a dish the same way it was done over 500 years ago. I'll definitely be continuing to fix some of my own items and learn more. I highly recommend this class.

Stephanie Byrne • May 2020

Jun was a very patient and knowledgable teacher. I was provided all the supplies I needed and they had set the space up to ensure all the necessary social distancing measures were taken. I'm looking forward to my next class!

Désirée Deklerk • Nov 2019

It was as much a cultural experience as an opportunity to learn an art I have been interested in for some time. Jun is a very knowledgeable and excellent teacher. I was guided through the journey of the class with clarity and a kind manner. I can highly recommend this class.

Great class. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Jun is clearly a kinsugi master and very generous with his knowledge. You are provided exactly everything you need and you have your own lamp and bin ect. They have thought of everything and it helped to make a great experience. Looking forward to next class!
