今日無事に8日間の個展が終わりました。初日は沢山の人が来てくれたけどそれ以降はチラホラと人が来るという感じ。正直もっと多くの人に来てもらいたかったけど、まだコロナ継続中なので難しいのでしょう。でも来てくれた人皆さん、総じて良い反応でした。それが何よりも嬉しいです^ ^とにかく良い経験をさせて貰えてハッピーです。次はライプツィヒでのグループ展です。詳細は追ってまた。そしてまだ未定ですが、ライプツィヒでも個展をするかもしれません。条件はドイツ滞在の更なる延長。今はどうするか思案中です。とても難しい選択であります。

My solo exhibition for eight days was done peacefully. On opening day, many people has come, but after next days only a few people visited. To be honest, I wanted many people to come more, but seems that it’s difficult for those who have anxiety against virus. However almost of the all visitors gave a good response for my works, it’s my pleasure:) Anyways I feel so happy giving me this great chance and experience. Next, I’ll join a group exhibition at Leipzig soon, let you know about details. And not decided yet, but second solo exhibition might be held in Leipzig, if I stay Germany more longer. Now I’m thinking how should I do, it’s quite tough decision for me.

Green tea bake

昨日7時間かけてギャラリーで絵の展示準備をして来ました。窓拭いたり床掃除したり色々大変でしたが何とか良い感じに収まりました。そして明日夜のオープニングパーティーの為に抹茶ケーキ作ってみました。美味しく出来ました〜ドイツの人にウケると良いな^ ^

Yesterday the preparation of display at gallery was completed taking seven hours. Although it was quite hard work to do something such as window cleaning, floor sweeping and so on, we could do preparing somehow. And I made a green tea bake for tomorrow opening party. Yummy ! Hope German people like this taste:)

Share mates

私には2人のシェアメイトがいます。2人はニュージーランド人で、sound artistのクロビスとそのパートナーのガーリンです。私の今の絵のテーマである音楽と絵の融合を全くの偶然ですがクロビスも実践していて、彼の場合は音楽側から3Dバーチャルを使ってアプローチしてます。ガーリンはアーティストでは無いけどシェフ兼ギタリストの素敵な女性です。彼女の影響で手抜きしない料理を私も始めました。2人は本当に良い人達で改めて彼らとシェア出来てラッキーだと日々感じてます。もし1人で今の状況に置かれてたら鬱々としてたかもしれない。彼らとの生活が今はとても楽しいです。

Now I share the apartment with two people, Clovis and his partner Garling, who were from New Zealand. Clovis is a sound artist and coincidentally has a theme of integration between music and art which is same as my current theme of work. He approaches that from music side using 3D virtual equipment. Garling isn’t an artist, but chef and guitarist. She’s really wonderful person, and taught me the splendor of cooking without corner-cutting. I feel so happy and lucky to share with them because they’re very nice people. If I’ve lived by myself here, I might have been depressed due to this situation. I enjoy this life together with them!

Recent status 4

先日帰国を検討しましたが日本もドイツも双方共にあらゆる規制強化中で現実的ではないので諦めました。そもそもベルリンに来た最大の目的は絵の展示をする事です。レジデンス主催者は6月末にグループ展をライプツィヒで行う予定でいます。それまでは私もドイツにいる予定ですが6月すら怪しい場合は帰国を早めるつもりです。予測不能な未来を気にしてても仕方ないので、今出来る事を楽しんでます。絵を描き、ピアノを弾き、ギターを弾きつつ歌を歌い、普段は作らない凝った料理を作り、縫い物したり、少し散歩したり…それからジョジョアプリでジョジョの漫画を無料で読んでます。まるで雅な道楽者の様です^ ^この状況が永遠に続く訳では無いので、逆に貴重な時間と捉えます。

The other day I considered going back to Japan but gave up right now, because, Japan and Germany, both countries keep implementing tighter regulations. First of all, the biggest purpose of coming Berlin was joining the exhibition. Our organizer has a plan to hold an exhibition at Leipzig in the end of June, I’ll stay here till finishing the exhibition. But if it’s hard to do that even June, I’ll return home faster. Anyway, it’s nonsense to worry about the unpredictable future, I enjoy my current life to do something such as painting, piano, guitar while singing, cooking, sewing, walking a little bit… and reading comics Jojo for free using application. I’m like an elegant hobbyist 🙂 This situation by no means continue eternally, i try to think it’s meaningful time.



It was decided that the piano will be delivered at my apartment! Wow!!! In fact, our organizer made a decision to quit the gallery at Berlin and the piano there’s at gallery would be relocated someone’s home. Yesterday I was informed of these news, I shocked so deeply. I can’t bare to stay here without piano, seriously I considered going back to Japan. But they were defeated by my enthusiasm for piano(?), the place of piano was changed here. Btw they run the gallery at Leipzig from now on. Anyways I’m relieved about the piano:)


今一番行きたい場所は森か山です。山育ちの私にとって自然の中が最も心落ち着く場所です。でも今は行けない…という事で絵に描く事にしました。ここ最近絵の案が浮かんでは消え、全然作品作れて無かったのですが、やっと今描きたいモチーフが分かりました。実は自分の為に作品を作るのは初めてです。どんな作品に仕上がるか楽しみです^ ^

Now the place i wanna go to most is mountain or forest. In the nature is the most calming place for me because I grew up in an environment surrounded by mountain, but I cannot go there in current situation. So I’ll try to draw that on the painting. These days it has been on and off in my inspiration for works, I couldn’t make new one. At last I knew the best motif I wanna draw. Actually it’s first time to make a practice for me myself. I’m excited what I can do it:)

Spring clothes

今最も大きな問題は春服が無い事です。今週はどうやら20度超えるらしく、これは極めて深刻です。日本から送ってもらう予定の荷物は様々な事情によりいつ届くか定かではないです。あまり服を買いたくも無いし…でも今日近所の道端で春服(ジーンズ、カーディガン、ワンピース)拾いました^ ^(ベルリンでは道端に要らない本とか服を置く習慣があり、私はよく本をゲットします)。とにかくありがたく着させて貰います。

I have significant problem that having no spring clothes. Seems that it’ll be over 20℃ next week, it’s very serious for me. Not sure when the luggage which my parents expect to send me will be delivered from Japan due to various reasons. I don’t wanna buy many clothes here as possible. But today I picked up spring clothes(jeans, cardigan, one-piece) on the nearby street. (There is a habit of putting things that are not needed on the road at Berlin, I often pick up books.) Anyways I receive these clothes with many thanks 🙂


私がイラストから日本画に転向したきっかけは愛猫の死です。彼女の死が悲しすぎて所謂ペットロスになっていた時に、スペインで出会った数々の大きなfine artに癒されました。その時に私も人々を癒す様な絵(fine art)を描きたいと強く思いました。そして帰国後に偶然訪れた日本画展で日本画のテクスチャーの魅力にはまりました。今はイラストを再開して両方描いてるけど根底にある思いは変わらず人々への癒しです。今現在、不安に苛まれてる多くの人々を少しでも私の絵で癒せたら幸いです。早く絵の展示が出来る様な状況になります様に。

The trigger why I changed my painting style from illustration to Japanese painting is the death of my love cat. When I’ve been suffering from pet loss due to deep sadness, I was healed by many big sized paintings I met in Spain. At that time, I strongly thought I wanna be a fine art painter who can heal observers depressing like me. After going back to Japan I was drawn to a texture of Japanese painting at exhibition I went there by chance. Now I resume painting illustrations again, but my underlying beliefs is healing for people remain the same. If I can do the people suffered from current anxiety through my works, I’d be happy. Hope circumstances change good enough and we’ll be able to exhibit our pieces of art ASAP🤲


今日からギターの練習始めました。シェアメイトからの借り物です。彼女はめちゃ上手!ピアノはギャラリーにあるので毎日は弾きにくい(徒歩30分)けどギターはいつでも弾けます^ ^私の大好きなBump of chicken のギターナンバー’everlasting lie’をマスターしたい。勿論弾き語りで。初心者なのに難しい曲に挑戦してるけど頑張る💪目標はブライアンメイ笑

From today I started playing a guitar which I rent from my share mate who’s guitar expert. It can allow me to play everyday compared with piano there’s in gallery(30 minutes by walking). I wanna master a guitar number ‘everlasting lie’ by BUMP OF CHICKEN I love, while singing , of course:) I try to play difficult song despite a beginner, do my best! My target level is Brian May :p

Economic system


The market economy has been damaged by the stagnation of economic activity caused by this virus problem, and the anxiety for people. In my opinion, I think that a market-based economy with a lot of instability is reaching its limits. I’ve always wondered where the ultimate goal for the society of competition principle and the materialism are. My ideal one is a recycling society. There are many small circles in a large circle, and the economy runs in each circle. It is said that growth is stagnant in a recycling-based society, but I think it will grow spirally. And also definition of growth would be changed. However, people may not be able to stay being in the circle unless they give up certain degree of possession greed. I’m not good at economics, and it is not possible to build a concrete social system so it can only be said in an abstract way. It’s a good time to change the social system seriously, anyways.
