Born the second daughter of the first generation Toko, after graduating from girls’ school, she studied pottery while working at her father’s workshop as his assistant. In 1954, with her father’s death, she succeeded to the name of second generation Konishi Toko and assumed representation of the Toko kiln.
She devoted herself to even more research of Toko Sengiri color variations, and research of things like gloss and natural features. As the representative of the Toko kiln she contributed to the overall development of Bizen-ware, as she moved forward with promoting the manufacture and sale of practical pottery, and in 1979, demolished the existing kiln and built the highest noborigama (climbing kiln) in Bizen which is one of its famous spots.
