short shorts film festival Tokyo 2013

A new chapter of my life will begin in Tokyo next week, and to celebrate grand opening, I want to go to this film festival in Tokyo/Yokohama. It's all about short films, as the name clearly suggests.

...and I want to see this film, Curfew. It looks interesting!

Monday morning blues

It's rainy outside
umbrellas dance on the street
Monday morning blues

Haiku from Tokyo

A quiet morning
crispy breeze sways pink lilies
still spring in Tokyo

Good-bye America, until next time...

I'll leave this country
when the morning light shines in
I'll keep the memories
