Born in Nagoya in 1960. Tatzu has been working mainly in Europe since 1997. He is known for producing bold and adventurous projects that involve people with the urban landscape as the stages, such as constructing rooms by incorporating outdoor monuments and street lights, etc., and turning them into living rooms. Some of his works actually operated as a hotel. He currently works in Berlin and Tokyo. Some of his major works include the "Merlion Hotel," a hotel project in 2011, featuring Singapore's Merlion statue; "Discovering Columbus," a project in 2012, that employed the monument of Columbus in Manhattan, New York City, and "So I only want to love yours," an installation set up inside the Hermitage Museum in Russia in 2014. In Japan, he partook in Yokohama Triennale in 2005, Aichi Triennnale in 2010 and created "Cheri in the Sky" in Hermes Ginza in 2006.
