Hello there. Thanks for visiting my web!

My show in Osaka, Japan (Feb 20th – Mar 11th) was happily finished last month!

Thank YOU very much for those who came to the show and gave me the warm comments on the work and talking about your own dreams!
I really enjoyed when people started talking about their own dreams.
I heard that even some of them had mysterious dreams at night after visiting my show. I’m glad that our subconscious can be communicative to each other somehow!
Thanks a lot those of you who sent beautiful flowers and some gifts!!
I was so happy to see and talk with all of you indeed!
Hoping to have a show in Japan and see you soon again!

Here are photos of the Osaka’s show,
