My first attendance at an exhibition


Last month I attended a small exhibition in a coffee shop for the first time. The chinese letter is the name of a tree on the moon and it means the moon in China.
The words are 'When your heart is calm, your voice is soft and your acts are deliberate'; the words of Myoye, a Zen priest in Kamakura era. I was helped with the translation by Mr. Warren Gehl in Kumamoto Gakuen College.

My daughter got married


My last children Kae had a wedding ceremony in Saga City.
She now lives in Kurosaki, Kitakyushu City.
My sons live in Tokyo and Kyoto and so I feel it is much closer.
We can drive there in 3 hours and it is very lucky that my brother and his family's residence is five minutes drive from
my daughter's apartment.

I was on TV and CD jacket


Three years ago my fellow teacher who is a volunteer station master of a small unmanned station, I and our wives welcomed a TV star and musician Sekiguchi Tomohiro for NHK TV program.
He made a music CD, 'Songs of Traveling' and put a picture of us and my work on its jacket.
