Akiko Suzuki

Osaka, JAPAN

We met Akiko at the 2016 convention of the Brewster Kaleidoscope Society. This is an international group of kaleidoscope artists, retailers and collectors. Approximately 25 Japanese members come each year to these conventions.

It was a pleasure getting to know Akiko. She’s a lovely, lively woman who clearly enjoys her participation at each convention. She loves to share her knowledge of kaleidoscopes with others in attendance, as well as discuss how her methods in construction differ and are similar to those created by other kaleidoscope artists.

We also found her small teleidoscope styles lovely, and her mirror systems were perfectly constructed, a crucial step! She designs them all, and has the exterior tubing manufactured for her in Japan. She stressed to us, however, that she doesn’t use Chinese manufacturers!

Akiko frequently teaches kaleidoscope making at various venues in Japan such as the Sendai Kaleidoscope Museum.
