OHARA Jigoemon XVI (b. 1979) The art of Jōhana Makie has been passed down from father to son for sixteen generations since 1575, and the name “Jigoemon Ohara” has been inherited since the Azuchi-Momoyama period up to this very day. I am not only a craftsman of fine artifacts including tea ceremony utensils and artwork honored by imperial inspection in Japan, but also actively engaged in exhibitions, and preservation of cultural heritage such as Hikiyama floats both domestically and overseas. I have given talks and presentations in Japan, the US, Hong Kong, as well as at TEDxHimi. I succeeded the name “OHARA Jigoemon XVI” in 2019.
