Kaji was born in Kyoto, Japan. She graduated from the ceramics course at Kyoto Municipal University of Art. Kaji states, "The existence of each and every person rests upon history -- ones own history, the history others have composed, the history of the earth, all encompassed by the history of the universe. Within this world I work on and on to confirm my existence, as infinitely small as it may be."
