Daiki Arimura

Honest, steadfast, and an insatiable seeker.

I first encountered the Karakuri box when I visited Hakone.
I still vividly remember being shocked at how interesting things could be made out of wood.
After that, I couldn’t stop thinking about Karakuri boxes and as I tried to make them myself, I became fascinated with the fun of it. Before I knew it, I was a Karakuri box craftsman.
I would like to create a work that adds an element of enjoyment apart from the Karakuri mechanism.
