Makiko Sato

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Makiko Sato was trained for hospitality skills at Imperial Hotel, the legendary landmark of Tokyo. Makiko deeply believes philosophy of the hospitality can be required as the idea to create nature in people needs.

Crossed over for gaining garden design skill in Writtle College in the UK. Her horticultural career initially took off as a show coordinator, she had worked for several medal winning garden designers in the Chelsea Flower Show since 2004 and for Sarah EberleAndy Sturgeon at the Gardening World Cup in Nagasaki, Japan.

‘When I was 7, my parents, my dad was an architecture, moved to the countryside that gave me an opportunity to grow up amongst nature and appreciate the importance of having flora in one's life.
I hope to illustrate natural harmony by bringing any different styles where are unified and coexist in utter tranquillity.

Garden is a place to make us happy in the world.
