Shuko Kano(Master Instructor of Sogetsu HQ)
While I was completely absorbed arranging this piece of work...
I saw a Kirin* gently flying out of the ground with many rays of hope on it.
I feel as if a time of peace seems right around the corner... That made me very happy.

*A legend says that the Kirin appears as an auspicious harbinger of good things to come.
They are said to be kind-hearted creatures which can fly through the air, who never stand on the ground in order to avoid stepping on insects and grass.
It is also seen as a sign of peaceful times, and is said to be a symbol of happiness that brings calm and tranquil days.

*For previously displayed works, please visit the Japanese Room Gallery.
