Born in 1942 in Osaka, the famous Japanese artist Hajime Okamoto traveled to China’s Jilin Province on a youth cultural exchange, and created modern Chinese-influenced art with a unique Japanese taste. He focuses on calligraphy and painting.
In 1998, he created the famous ‘Kabamaru’ series, a group of hand drawn cats caught in a variety of amusing and mischievous poses, with equally interesting and fitting captions. Each cat has its own personality! The leader Kabamaru likes to chill and amble around slowly. Momoji is silly, and loves to play. Urume is a charming and relaxed rogue. Sakon loves to play with fast moving objects!
The Okamoto Hajime Tray Square is a great match for your new Okamoto Hajime Bowls and Chopsticks! Pensive Kabamaru says ‘I want to become happy, but I don’t want to try hard’, (shiawase ni naritai keredo, ganbaritakunai). We all have these sort of days! Embrace your inner couch potato with the lazy Kabamaru ^^ The gentle mustard yellow background color provides a relaxing backdrop to the cute cat. The tray is ideal for serving some coffee!
