HI! I'M NAOKO
I founded Art Curator Japan in 2016 with the objective of promoting Japanese art to a wider audience. I graduated in Japanese literature from Nihon University, Tokyo. Deeply influenced by my grandmother who was a Tanka (poetry) writer, I devoted my studies to classical literature, especially to ancient scrolls like Man’yoshu, Kojiki, or the Tale of Genji, etc. I have a keen interest in traditional culture (I am a licensed Kimono dresser) and modern Japanese art, I decided to merge my passions into my Art Curator Japan project.
