It started with Fun & Creativities. In 1988, the original founder, Yataro Horikiri, established Sakura Hobby Craft in the United States with his joy and passion to share the Fun of Creativities. The products, innovative craft kits, were not only easy and fun, but also durable and practical for use in our daily lives. Mixing traditional American crafting with Asian cultures, the products started to sell throughout the United States. In 1992, the company introduced the US patented 3D Crystal Lacquer, the first product of its kind in the market. Yataro’s successor, Hiro Nakano, who is the current president of the company, developed 3D Crystal Lacquer into a product that is now well known throught the world. The quality of 3D Crystal Lacquer is constantly improving, with the aditions of a variety of colors and different usages. Based on the spirit of Fun of Creativities and sharing the joy of quality lives, Sakura Hobby Craft is joyfully creating many more innovative and exciting crafts projects and kits with passion and joy
