Words from Artist:
It has been 40 years since I began living in Niseko.
My lifestyle is centered around enjoying nature, especially the wonderful breeze from Niseko Annupuri. I draw inspiration for my style from the mountains and rivers, plants and trees, insects and birds. I absorb the energy coming from the universe and emerging from the earth.
