Itoshima Now


Since the mid-eighties, Masato Sakoda has journeyed around Asia collecting and trading antique beads. In January 2018, Masato and his French wife moved their workshop and gallery from Tanegashima to Shima-sakurai. Some of their beads on display are hundreds of years old, and each one is unique. Learn about their history and significance, and if you connect with one, Masato can fashion you up a custom-made bracelet or necklace.
