I love Taiwan!

Good Morning in many, many languages.


It’s a little bit late, but we are back in Japan.

A new week starts and it’s also the start of February.

With the new month, we went to Taiwan.

I guess, Taiwan is warmer than Japan.

Everytime I ask somebody about Taiwan, they say it’s nice and that’s true.

The first time in Taiwan we got greeted with a warm welcome and I couldn’t stop smiling.

Taiwan, the people and their gentle smiles were really great.

I couldn’t get a “I♡TAIWAN ” T-shirt, but I got all the warm feelings.

Thank you I♡TAIWAN

Your name...( Reference to the Movie Title)

[ There are recently only news about him…]

The Mont Blanc, I received, was sweet, I couldn’t finish it.

But today is Monday with a warm and sunny start.

Today I am fine with light clothes.The sun today shone brightly, the colour of the sky and the colour at the weekend were like the Saturday.

Let’s all feel the soft wind of the new week!

Have a great week! .\(* ´∀`\)”

[Oh, well, but ehm…]

Today’s sun has also the colour of the weekend.

Yesterday morning, the right side of my beard stood up,

I shaved it…

At the moment, I did it, I noticed, that the attachment was off.

(ノ д <●)”) Ah ah…

But, I live as “Bald-Beard Hiro”,

in the short moment, when I went out yesterday morning, thinking it would be fine like that.

[Fire killer whale witnessed!!!]

Today’s sun too, is shining bright and a blue sky.

Today I got 3 small croquettes, which I received in a bowl and a sugar toast.

If I had a bowl of croquettes…

I wonder how many I'd eat…Tomorrow, we will take leave to Taiwan, in the morning, from Haneda.

I look forward to Taiwan…

I have to go to early today…

But there times, I couldn’t fall asleep…

In such a case, I close the eyelids and then close the eyes in the eyelids..

In such a case close the eyelids and close one's eyes in the eyelids ...

Let’s count french fries…......



(33rd day of 2017)


Today, while dreaming a lot,

I woke up many times until I finally woke up at 4 am.

Then I prepared and went to Haneda Airport.

From now until Monday, I will be in Taiwan.

It seems, that at the Lantern Festival, the overseas artists appear for the first time…

Even at the airport, passing through the gates, from the camera, there were garlands for every new happening.

An Interviewer and the 2017 Taiwan Mascot-Bear character met us in the airport and interviewed us…

I didn’t know it at all, so I was surprised and also had a mysterious feeling…

We then checked in at the Hotel Caeser Park Taipei…

The hotel staff were also in a welcoming mood…

My hotel room is Spanish!

HOLA! \ (゜▽゜*)”

I will enjoy the next 3 days starting from tomorrow!!

Thank you everyone in Taiwan!!!

[One week has passed since that… I lost myself in thought. ]

We had a media interview this morning...and then I went back to the hotel once, before we had a blocking rehearsal…

But, it felt like we had a rehearsal in the middle of the Shibuya “scramble” crossing.

After it got dark, we had a full rehearsal; it was like the middle of the Shibuya “scramble” crossing on a weekend, but with five times more people... Rehearsal?... We had a rehearsal almost like the real thing… Rehearsal? No, this is too much like the real stage...

I am wondering how many people will be there for the real stage, if there were this many people here for a rehearsal….

I am so nervous, 100 times more than usual. ….(;´Д`)”

With the city lights in the night time and this atmosphere,

the Lantern Festival is wonderful.

Well, I will have a good rest tonight and do my best to live tomorrow!!

Take the first step..


(35th day of 2017)

[In the dusk, a certain place (Holy Land)... ]

Here we are, performance day is today….

Wow…, OMG…There were more and more and more people than yesterday….WOW

The sky turned pink before it got dark…. It watched over the opening of the Lantern Festival.

I am wondering how many thousands… or tens of thousands of people got together here...

The air was thick with the enthusiasm of the people, the white confetti was drifting down, glittering in the night sky in the city. It was really beautiful and amazing...I was totally moved.

I hope I will see their warm smiles tomorrow again….

I went back to the hotel and then I took a walk around the city in Taiwan tonight by myself.

I bought some pineapple cake for a souvenir. After that I took a shower and I stretched my stiff body to loosen up.

I ate a No-soup cup noodle and Bento for dinner tonight. I didn’t notice but, that cup noodle has two layers with the soup for side...

I just put everything into my noodle bowl and mixed them all up... haha…

but….that was delicious…

There is so much tasty food in Taiwan.

But, I have been drawing this picture for more than three hours,

and I realized that it was 0:40am ((゜Д゜●;)”

Hey...what am I doing… Go to bed!!

However, this drawing, only a few centimeters wide, with this touch-pen....

What a great job I have done! ….

ok, ok Go to bed quickly!!! I will do my best to live tomorrow again.

Today again, everyone in Taiwan, everyone in Japan, everyone in the world…

Go to bed… no no, I meant “Thank you”.\(゜▽゜●)/”


(36th day of 2017)

[....Y...yy...your name... ]

The second performance day today; we had a cloudy sky in Taiwan this morning.

Tonight is our last night in Taiwan. The temperature was 21℃ during day. The wind felt nice and I didn’t need my coat.

I was staying in a room by the time we performed yesterday, but I took a walk for a little bit and I went back to the room and did some stretches.

I hope we all have a wonderful time at the Lantern festival….

We will do our best.

And again, we have finished without any problems.

The best stage, the best staff, the best participants, Taiwan is awesome; it was the most wonderful stage.

Thank you so so much.

When we got in the car, people told us in Japanese, “Please come back again,” and that made me really happy.

Thank you very much. We will see you again for sure!!! !!!


It is beginning of a new week.

May each day and each hour of the new week be filled with peace and warmth as usual…

May a warm wind blow softly into everyone's heart in the world and warm everyone’s heart…

it is going to be okay,

​it is going to be okay,

it is going to be alright.

The wind has blown.

Let’s live!!...\(´∀`●)ノ”

【Remember to keep kindness and a warm heart. May a smiling wind blow throughout the world….】【May your week be filled with warmth that, with each step you take, will lead you into tomorrow….】

To the new week…

Look up at the sky and take a big deep breath. \(´ ゜`/)”phew..

With warmth feelings….

Off we go!!
