Vol. 40 monokraft

This weekend, I went to check out some interesting gallery/place/exhibition to fulfill my curiosity and get myself out from my own comfort zone. Each of these places has different location in Tokyo and it seemed to me that the walk was like one big trip overseas for me even though it was probably a not-so-damn-faraway distance like my home to couple stations away. I realized that I should get my ass up to explore Japan at least on the weekend in order to discover what really Japan has to offer even though I can let myself travel everywhere, whenever I want. These places I visited, I will talk about them soon and it was really interesting to take a look at. On the way to one of places that brought myself out, I needed to let myself cuddle with whole bunch of people at Omotesando. I also realized that among countless people, a lot of foreigners are spending their time on exploring Japan as well. No wonder Japan is one of the leading must-see countries to visit. I felt that I somehow would love to support them in some ways. Let’s see how I can do that or not.

久しぶりに表参道に出向くと、人は多い事には変化はないが海外の観光客の数に驚く自分がいた。これからより多くの人達が日本を訪れるに違いないと感じる日であった。

木の製品が作り出すぬくもりと、同時に時間の経過によって作り出される傷や衰退していく模様が素晴らしいと思う。時が経つとともに語られるストーリーはそれぞれ違っており、自らの人生とともに歩めば歩むほど記憶が刻み込まれていくのが魅力的だ。
