Yamato's Japanese Sculptor Original Character Series (JSCOS) pays tribute to the leading sculptors of Japan and their most stunning original creations.

Yamato is exceeding pleased to bring the works of renowned Japanese sculptor Kouichi Yamazaki (TANDEM TWIN) to the international audience as part of its new Japanese Sculptor Original Character Series.
