Teruhide Kato (1936-2015) had studied at Kyoto Art College. He was a famous
kimono fashion designer. When he was 50 years old, he decided
to follow his real passion, and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist. Success remained with the artist.
After a gallery exhibition in New York and a book publication of
his works titled "Kyoto Romance" he is as famous as a woodblock
artist as he used to be as a kimono designer
