Toshiko Dozono, a native of Osaka, Japan, studied performing arts, creative dance under the distinguished guidance of Dr. Masami Kuni. While visiting Canada in 1980, Toshiko met her husband, Kenzo Dozono, a locally renowned Japanese Shotokan (SKIF) Karate Master and Yang Ming Shih Tai-Chi Chuan Master, living in Canada. Through her life-long association with his students, disciples and Masters, many who are artists, Toshiko gained a profound awareness and love for the beauty of Japanese art in its various traditional forms.
From that deep appreciation, Red Maple Connection was born in Ontario, Canada, as a joint venture with the Art Gallery and Mounting Place of Japan. The Red Maple mission is to offer high quality, original Japanese traditional art to people everywhere. We are committed to bringing only the best from the world of exquisite Japanese painting right to your home to be appreciated for its timeless beauty and elegance by those familiar with or new to Japanese culture.
With history dating back more than 2,000 years, Japanese painting and calligraphy Kakejiku are hauntingly beautiful and spiritual. Having an original, signed Japanese painting will give you joy and peace every time you admire it and it will be treasured for generations.
Red Maple Connection is your bridge to Japanese culture, art and serenity. It is our greatest pleasure and honor to bring you happiness and calmness of mind through the enjoyment and prestige of owning beautiful, classic and traditional Japanese art. We look forward to helping you start your own tradition of original Japanese art treasures!
Art Gallery and Mounting Place :
Unsei-Do, the first generation of the Art Gallery and Mounting Place, opened its business in Ina-shi, Nagano, Japan in the Taisho period about 100 years ago. The second and third generation succeeded to his father's business and now it is an award-winning, long-established Art Gallery and Mounting Place for 100 years. Through years of wars and confrontations, we have guarded traditional mounting techniques of paintings. With a support of patronage and customers, it is our pleasure that the second generation was awarded as a "Master-hand of Shinshu" in 1998. This tradition will continue.
We thank you for your sincere support over the years. With the intention of devoting ourselves to Japanese traditional culture, we hope you will treasure the beauty of Japanese paintings and calligraphy.
