Hi everyone, how are you?   Thanks for visiting and checking out my website.
I’m Shigeki Furubayashi whose pen-name is Shigeki Ryu (立 資樺騎).
I am 71 years old (as of Jan. 2018) Japanese male from Tokyo, Japan.

Frankly speaking,  I’ve traveled many countries in the world during my 20s as I was very interested to see foreign countries’ culture,  places of interest,  people and so on.
Thanks to the opportunities having visited places globally,  I learned a lot from people of different cultures and the like, resulting the fact that I’ve been leading a full life with ages.

At the same time,  I’d like to give all what I’ve learned throughout my life about the traditions of Japan to you, and I am hoping that this informative website can be beneficial to you when you visit us here in Japan in the near future!

Finally,  please feel free to ask me anything,  not only regarding traditional items but also about latest modern & trendy items which are authentic products made in Japan, not made by Japan,  and I’d really appreciate your feedback.

Thanks again and enjoy browsing my website!
