Happy birthday! 我が家初の米寿


7.19 7,19

My mother turned 88 years old today. One of my precious friends sent us a premium Japanese saké to celebrate both my mother’s 88th birthday and my 61st birthday just one month ago.

My mother hadn’t had any alcoholic drinks for years, but this time, she was happy enough to taste a little bit of this saké appreciating the sender’s kind heart.

Now, you can easily see that my fondness for Japanese saké is very well known among my friends and acquaintances, one example being the past entry.

I live in Kyoto, Japan, where I was born and raised. I began practicing calligraphy at age seven under the late Akiyama Kodo, a distinguished master of calligraphy whose calligraphic works are found even today on stone monuments for public parks and fasciae for long-established businesses. Despite my age, I think I am increasingly active in my calligraphic practice. "My works give the impression of lightheartedness and overflowing vitality, evoking the dance of air and the flow of clear water" is what people tell me, I am happy and proud to tell you. My distinct style has attracted many followers both domestic and abroad. Having continued for over half a century to be evolving as a calligrapher, I am never willing to compromise. May accomplishments: Solo exhibition, 2009 and three group exhibitions in Kyoto, Japan (2011, 2013, 2015) Participation in a group exhibition in Poznan, Poland, November 2017 Productions as requested from individuals, businesses and citizen’s movements
