Akarino-Tane

The smaller things in life

Self-taught in woodworking, Hiroyuki Inoue started Akarino-Tane with the help of his wife Miyuki in 2006 after inheriting his grandfather's studio. As the chairman of the Asahikawa Craft Association, Hiroyuki is compelled to revitalize the Asahikawa region as a whole, of which displays an abundance of skilled woodworkers. Additionally, with his children on his mind and as a representative of the Codo-Mono-Coto group, his passion also lies in the research and development of children's products to enhance their every day growth and enrich their lives.
