A week of swollen Eyes...

Good Morning in many, many languages.


From Sunday on we went to Beijing, and at Wednesday night, we came back to Japan.

I'm back, Japan! (*'∀ `)

It was cold in Beijing

Everybody, December has started.

At the end of the year, I think every day will be busy.

I wish, that the last month of the year 2016, the December,

will have peaceful and warm days.

【Shizuku (Water-drop) is again dyed in many various colours. (´ω`●) 】


(333th day of 2016)

[Shizuku, in the color of red pepper)

My right eyelid is going two-fold.

(TN: probably referring to the difference between "Monolid" and "Double Eyelid" .Asian people seem to be more aware about this feature as western)

In the morning, my right eye got heavier, immediately dry and then tears came…

When I was 18 years old, my eye went suddenly two-fold and it lasted for 2 years…

Here in Beijing, if you compare Beijing with Japan, the air gets colder and colder in the morning.

But, the morning sun has a beautiful orange color.

Seems like today’s weather will be good.

Yesterday, I ate spicy food.

I was fine, I guess…

From this night, I won’t eat it anymore.

A magnificent hamburger

It was tasty, but kind of…

I couldn’t finish it…

But to realize, I could eat the French fries…

And they were some tasty potatoes…

All right, with the strength of the potatoes, I shall give my best for tomorrow!


(334th day of 2016)

[Shizuku, in the color of Beijing's morning sun]

Day two of my two-fold eye and today too, my right eye is heavy…

I got a heavy face naturally, but it gets heavier…

But somehow it connects…good

But, teary eyes…

my eyes…. my eyes….

Today too, the morning sun has, from the gap between the buildings, a beautiful orange.

It gave me its look.

The staff, with whom we could finish today’s job without problems

-The clients, including the launch- The restaurant, in which it seems Spielberg got invited was way too amazing-Only thinking about that, my stomach went full.

I hope, that our wonderful work will be ready

Thank you very much.


(335th day of 2016)

[Shizuku, in the color of

'I ♡ Beijing']

Last day in Beijing;

Day three with my two-folded eye… it won’t heal…

In the last day, after we did the checkout, we went to the Tiananmen Square.

The scenery that I had seen on TV, in Reality is a much wider and bigger square.

While I was in Beijing…

To see new things and to experience, to feel the atmosphere of a different country, to feel the smiles and hearts and I felt, that the sky is somehow connected.

To the people, who took care of us, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks Beijing


When I was in airplane, I saw the movie (君の名は Your Name),

but I stopped my many tears from gratitude…

when I was home, I cried tearfully, even I could feel the excitement.

It really was a splendid work…

Maybe when the DVD is released, I'll end up buying it…

First thing I was grateful went I came back: Japan is hot…

Because the temperature in Beijing was low, I thought Japan was cold too,

but I was sweating…

I wonder, if my eye will return back…


(336th day of 2016)

[Shizuku in the color of Takoyaki]

Day four of my two-folded eye…What the…!! It won’t heal!!!

Normally, both eyes are two-or one folded (at the same time)

What could it be?

I feel really a discomfort…Heavy…

Return to the former state!!!!!!!!!

The sun has come up.

I somehow want to eat Takoyaki or something else…

It’s frozen food, but...

after all, it’s tasty…

I give my best for tomorrow, too.


(337th day of 2016)

[Shizuku in the color of

Prosciutto e Melone]

Today, my eyelid became two-folded again… feels heavy.

I look sleepy…

Today, I went to record in the evening. On the way back home,

I got on the last train,

but the last bus had already left,

so I lined up for the taxi.

It was 2:00AM when I got home...

How far away is Kawasaki….

By the way, our next song will be a nice one again.

We will work until midnight again the day after tomorrow.

I am wondering if I will be able to come home….

I will be rushed off my feet at the end of the year, and the beginning of the new year as well….

I forgot to take a picture today, so here is the APPETIZER bread....

It is amazingly tasty. It is just bread…. But, as my stomach was satisfied eating this appetizer

I was too full to eat the hamburger and tasty french fries….

that bread is sinful.

We must be busy one way or another towards the end of the year.

I hope we value our peaceful time.

Everyone, I hope you all have a warmhearted weekend….

I hope my eye will be back to normal tomorrow….


(3381st day of 2016)

[Shizuku in the Color of Saturday’s sky

Today is 6th day since my eyelid became double edged…

It will not go back to normal..

What should I do…

feels heavy….

Why did this happen…..

We had nice weather today again; Saturday’s sky was calm and it felt good…

Recently, somebody in the neighborhood seems to be keeping watch for something...

What a monitoring system…

in this cold weather, he/she set up a table, chairs and a heater outside,

he/she is even wearing a down jacket… It's kind of scary….

I wonder who is watching who and what for… I have no idea.

I searched on the internet, there are lots of results that came up. It seems there are lots of people like this..

Our neighbors are concerned about this also,

and they will not come out much anymore,

it’s kind of sad. We used to say ‘Hello’ to each other…

I hope that person’s heart will fill with peace…


(339th day of 2016)

[Shizuku in the Color of the cat, meow]

Well, we are going to shoot this morning!

After that, we have practice,

and then we shoot again late tonight. I hope it won't rain…..

I am wondering if I will catch the last train.

I don’t see any buses today, because the bus drivers are on strike. It is a strange scene. Because of that, the waiting lines for taxis are very long here and there.

I had a little break between the evening and the late night shooting, so I came home for a little bit….

But, the waiting lines for the taxis looked really bad, so I walked home and it took me 30 minutes. I left my house after I had a cup of coffee…

Well, please look forward to seeing how today’s shooting will turn out…...

I am nervous again…..

It will already be Monday by the time I get home.

I will work a little more to finish up the long day.

Everyone, I hope you all have a peaceful Sunday and heartwarming Monday…

Thank you for your hard work for the week.

It will be the first Monday of December, a new week starts.

May your week, each day, and each second be filled with peace and kindness.

I hope you will spend heartwarming days as usual.

May the gentle winds continue to blow softly into your heart

through the last day of 2016 as well…...

It is going to be okay, It is going to be alright.

The wind has blown.

Let’s feel as much as we can.

Let’s live!!! \(●´∀ `)ノ”

【Remember to keep kindness and a warm heart. May a smiling wind blow throughout the world.】【Once again this week, I hope the following week will be filled with warmth that follows your step into tomorrow….】

To the new week…

We are busy during the end of the year, but please do your best!!

Let’s do our best!!

Take care and keep yourself warm…..

Off we go!!
