He was born as the first son of Suekichi Sato(1905-1960) who was a Naruko style kokeshi craftsman. His father Suekichi learned Naruko style and made his kokeshi dolls in Iwate prefecture, which is Nanbu kokeshi’s crafting area. (Naruko town is in the other prefecture, Miyagi.) Thus, Kazuo made both Nanbu and Naruko style kokeshi as well. Kazuo started learning woodwork from 1974.
