The entrance today had this atmosphere.

Hello flowers, after all the preparations for spring.

Pearl acacia softly on the desk in your room today. It was beautiful.

I wore a hakama, haori and neck wrap. It is cold outside, but the room was warm.

Looking out over the lovely garden and into the soft sunlight, he spoke of “NasunoYoichi,” the eleventh volume of the Tale of the Heike, which he chooses to perform at garden & space Kuru Kuru.

The sound of the Enoden train, the wind, the helicopter, and the greenery in the garden are all the vibrancy of life. I started this small concert this year with the intention of overlaying the vibrancy of life 800 years ago on the vibrancy of life today. I will be in the army for 50 minutes.

I think of each story as if I am inside the story, and think from what angle I want to look at it (or fight it). In the case of “NasunoYoichi” this time, I wanted to look at Yoshitsune-sama, who is snapping at Yoichi, from this angle, or at the faces of the soldiers who are seeing him off to the sea, or I wanted to be the arrow that Yoichi shot… I was playing with my fantasy in my mind, but all these things passed me by! But all that has passed. Thank you for listening to my poor performance.

We still have a lot of work to do, both in terms of performance and management, but we are very grateful to be able to rent a place and to have people who are willing to listen to us. We will continue to learn as we go. Thank you to everyone who participated, and thank you to Kuru Kuru.

Now, the next meeting at this venue is Tuesday, March 26.
The program will be “Atsumorisaigo”.
