-Official Statement-
Mountains, rivers, grasses, trees, insects, rocks, seas, skies, clouds, winds and earth… The soul dwells in everything in the natural world.

Our ancestors used to see the spirituality in nature in previous times. Sometimes they felt fear, and sometimes they showed respect for the nature. They were living together with nature.

We, who are living in today’s society, are able to live comfortably in a world of convenience, with the development of civilization. We never be troubled with food shortages in Japan today. Instead, I can’t help feeling that we seem forgot a sense of gratitude and a mind of compassion for the nature. I’m living in the place with a rich nature. I wish this place where I live would continue to conserve the rich nature. I also wish that people and every natural life forms could live together in here for years to come.

I would appreciate it if I could send you what I received from the rich nature in daily life, such as the surprise, discovery and excitement, throughout my works.
