Yoshiyuki Ninomiya

The legend Master of Secret Box!

I started my woodwork when I was 16 years old. Ever since, I have worked earnestly for over 70 years. In 1981, I held my first private exhibition. After that, I started holding some private exhibitions. Through them, I’ve made many friends. Creating friendships through enjoying woodwork has been my greatest treasure.
