About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Im really appreciate for everyone's tenderness.I got many encouraging message from all over the world. Thank you so much. It was really terrible earthquake. but we have to strong and try to rebuilt and Im sure we can do it. がんばろう

ABOUT ME

I was studying Japanese religion,culture,folklore and literature in University.
especially Im fascinated Youkai(It is kind of fairy in Japan)and Kaidan(Japanese ghost story)
So I want to know not only Japan but also an overseas ghost story.
I traveled almost all area of Japan. Please ask me if you want to know the traditional Japanese landscape.

And I like to think about people's hometown. How the landscape have a effect to people's mind. I love to feel them landscape behind them words. I love to think about nostalgic feeling.

Lastly, Sorry for my poor English skill. I hated to study English when I was young. Probably its resistance to globalization. haha
Silly me... But I try to study English now. So Excuse that if I couldn't speak well.
And I dont know modern culture.(kind of V-key or Animation something like that.) Its my weak point!

PHILOSOPHY

I always respect life of the others person.
Whan I am taking in train,I am looking to over the window.
There are a lot of light in the house.
So I feel it is mean that the one light is one person's life.

There are a lot of human.
and the person have own life.
