Saul Bass, Stanley Kubrick, Robert Doisneau, Charles and Ray Eames, Jim Jarmusch, Wim Wenders, Jacques Tati, Yasujiro Ozu. I was inspired by their attitude and style. Not only my creativity, but also my life style have strongly influenced. They are all unique, dignified, and solitary expressionists with extraordinary concentration. What I learned from them is not the equipments such as cameras and computers. It is the faith that keeps me moving forward. I am a pure Japanese, born and raised in Japan. That makes me who I am and enables me to create what I create. I expect my creation to reach all the people around the world with different language and different background. And I hope to make them feel happy. Up until now, and from now on.
