Master Koga was born in Nagasaki Japan in 1951, and at age 15 he started his apprenticeship as a wood sculptor and after 6 years he became independent in 1972. There's no such thing as schools for traditional Japanese wood sculpting so he had to learn under the watch of his master. Since then he has created numerous custom-made sculptures for temples, and private residences all over Japan and America.
