夜桜 Yozakura

The cherry blossoms are really beautiful at night too.
月の光、街灯をあびて闇に浮かぶ桜もまた美しいものです。

My new work inspired by ‘Yozakura’, cherry blossoms at night.
新作は夜桜をテーマにしました。

This work is one of my work shown at the exhibition in Japan embassy, London.
ロンドン日本大使館で開催される「紙」をテーマにした展示会に出す作品のうちの一点です。

Bloomed

To see cherry blossom is a great joy in spring.
They come back year after year.
This year I could enjoy them in our garden and in Tokyo as well.
Our cherry blossom came later but they already gone now.
By the next year’s joy…

満開の桜を愛でるのは春の大きな愉しみのひとつ。
今年も庭の桜が見事に花をつけました。春先に帰国、日本の桜も愉しむことができました。
すでに花は散り葉桜になりましたが、来年も私たちの目を楽しませてくれるでしょう。
それまでの間・・・
