Nationality: Japan
Course: Shoe Making
Program: Master Course
Period: Sept. 5,2016-Apr. 28,2017


日本では10年間ほど靴づくりとは関係のないお仕事をしていましたが、趣味としてずっと好きで続けていたのが革細工でした。休日には財布など小物をコツコツ作る毎日でした。そしてそこから派生して、この2年間は神戸にある靴学校に毎週通いました。自分が考えたものが形になっていくことが面白くて、休日は疲れていても靴作りが楽しくて仕方がありませんでした。とても時間がかかる作業ですが、出来上がりだけでなく、出来上がっていく様子がなんとも言えません。
一年ほど前から、思い切ってお仕事を辞め、本場イタリア・フィレンツェに革靴づくりを学びに行くことを決めました。今年の5月より4ヶ月間、語学学校でお世話になりイタリア語で何とか授業を受け始めました。まだまだ分からない事だらけですが、楽しみながら頑張りたいと思っています。

I worked in Japan for about 10 years but my former job had nothing to do with shoe making. I simply liked leather working as a hobby. I used to make small items such as leather wallets on my days off. For this past 2 years, I studied every week at a shoe making school in Kobe, Japan. I totally enjoyed the process of how my idea became actual shoes, so I kept making shoes on weekends even though I was tired from my weekday’s work. It takes a long time to make 1 pair of shoes, but I just love the shoe making process itself.
I quit my job 1 year ago and decided to come to Florence to study shoe making. I took Italian lessons for 4 months from this May, and I am now taking shoe making lessons in Italian. There is so much I need to learn now, but I hope to enjoy this learning experience.
