Hello there!
Thanks for visiting my web!

How are you all? I’m fine, thank you. Sorry if you have been worried about where I was! I was in Japan last month and I’m in Belgium now.

I’m going to Japan soon again. As you know, the North East of Japan had a massive natural disaster in March 11th. So many people who lost their home in the Tsunami and so many people who had to evacuate from the nuclear plants are still suffering in the shelters… I thank those of you who have been caring for them and supporting them! I believe that when a little help gathers, it will reach them as a huge help! Thank you for your warm hand of support for those people in my country! I really appreciate!!

I will be participate in a charity show of photography, which will be held in my home town, Kobe soon. Kobe had a huge earthquake 16 years ago and it was just horrible. Kobe was helped by so many people in the world at that time, and it has recovered perfectly now. I really appreciate it. I hope that the North East of Japan will have their peace back in the future like my home town!

Here are the details of the charity show;
