closeYuki SAKAMOTO


Yuki Sakamoto was born in Hokkaidō (the northernmost of Japan’s main islands) in 1998. While studying at Rumoi high school, Yuki became interested in traditional glass cutting and applied to Horiguchi Kiriko in the hope of receiving a work experience placement. In 2017, he entered the company as a full time member of staff which, at that time, made him Japan’s youngest Edo Kiriko apprentice. Everyday, he approaches his work with diligence and devotion.
