Later he worked as a professor at the Nagoya University of Arts until he retired in 1986. Saegusa is a member of the Japan Artists 'Association, Japan Sculptors' Association and Shin Kozo Exhibition Paintings Division. Saegusas enthusiasm for the arts continues after his retirement. His bronze works display a variety of themes and postures, reflecting traditional Japanese culture with injection of abstract elements. His works are highly revered for their artistic beauty. After his retirement, Saegusa focused on sculptures of animals including lunar animals. Saegusa has won a number of prestigious awards. In 1941, his works were selected for the 8th Shin Kozo Exhibition Western Painting Division and the 15th Imperial Exhibition Sculpture Division and he has been invited to take part in the exhibition every year since.
