Kazuko Koizumi was born in 1933 in Tokyo. She received Ph D in Engineering from the University of Tokyo.

She has written more than fifty books in Japanese and around forty research papers, and given more than one hundred and fifty lectures throughout Japan.

She has also played an important role as a founder of museums that collect and exhibit valuable and rare traditional Japanese furniture.
