Born in Showa 26 (1951) in Tokyo's Musashino City, from 18 years old Yoshihide began training in the art of metal embossing and its related techniques.
In Heisei 5 (1993), at the first All-Japan Gold & Metal Works Exhibition, his flower vase entitled "Chouryu (Tide)" took the Tokyo Metropolitan Labour & Economy Bureau Director's top prize. As a result of winning his first exhibition, where a second work of his, a drinking vessel entitled "Shouzui (Good omen)" also received an honorable mention, Yoshihide has become widely recognized as a true professional standing at the forefront of design. As a leading figure in metal working, in Heisei 19 (2007), Yoshihide was publicly acknowledged by the Minister of Health, Labor & Welfare as a "Present-day Craftsman". His "Pure Gold & 18 Carat Gold Orin (Buddhist bells)" have incredibly clear tones that even the latest technology cannot reproduce. Due to his preeminently individual techniques and unique sensitivity in continuously attempting new works, in Heisei 24 (2012), he was awarded the Medal with Yellow Ribbon for Outstanding Service.
