Old Picture Books

I took these picture books for my son at my parents' home in Nagoya. As the blue one has a big foot in the center of facing pages, he calls it "ASHI(foot)". He likes "Give me a hug" so match, grins just by listening to the title. 
My mother has been keeping these picture-book-collection for grandchild. I feel happy to pass old books I read to the next generation. Thanks, Mom.

Time flies fast! It has been a year since we came back to Japan.

I could meet great friends there, and did many projects with artists from all over the world. Studied composition in music and dance. Performed for more than 1000 young children at nurseries and kindergartens as the MEMO artist. Worked in a special improvisation group, DaMu. Made a musical theater, Opera "Butterfly Dream". It is very special how I went to holland alone and was coming back with wife and son!

The Netherlands gave me so many things, I cannot say "I miss". Because it is already a part of me. You all I met, made me as I am. I am here in Japan with you. Thank you, my dear friends!
