He exhibited consistently and was awarded several time at the prestigious Nitten, eventually selected to serve as a judge there. There is now a museum dedicated to his work called the Mori no Chabako Museum (Tea Box in the Forest Museum). The Fukagawa Museum dedicates one room to his sculpture and there are many public works in various cities around the world.
