Tatsuaki specialized in delicate woodwork, including carved objects and cabinetwork, for which he also would create surface finishes in dry lacquer and mother-of-pearl. In 1968, he provided furnishings for the new Imperial Palace building in Tokyo. Member of the Japan Folk Art Association and a trustee of the Japan Kōgei Association.
