"Like many of the greats, Nahiko as a multi-talented artist he accomplished in the pursuit of calligraphy, oil painting, sculpting, and his greatest love, the Shakuhachi. Unfortunately, his artistic pursuits were cut short during the war when he was drafted into the army to fight in WWII. After being released from service, he spent a number of years traveling the countryside playing the Shakuhachi and for a time practicing as a reclusive Zen priest at Myoanji temple.
Finally, his creative spirit was rekindled by the fire of the potter's kiln and this became his life's calling.
