Patience and Hope

Good Morning in many, many languages


This week, was one of cloudy skies and lot of rain,

It was a week to put in the past

Let us look up at the vivid sky once more



(220th day of 2017)

It's hot... temperature rises due to the typhoon approaching

The sun is glaring hot and the clouds are fluffy.

This morning while leaving, some worker wasps flew straight to my Face, “Boom”

they were small though; and then, from the sky, a cicada landed, flapping nosily on the staircase, I stopped for a moment, because I was a bit afraid of passing sideways, I jumped a step further, then I was flapping myself... The moment I leaped sideways, it flapped noisily

Today we have clear weather,

time for Wasps, Cicadas, then Typhoons passing…

From Monday, the sky is also flapping

My head is full, however,

let’s live to the upmost this week too


(221st day of 2017)

Last night, I fell asleep quickly, then

again, 3: 00 am... still dark...

is it morning? Night?

This morning started from cloudy skies, but the sun came out too.

The wind of the rest of the typhoon, is blowing as lukewarm air...

People in the prefecture of the typhoon path, Please beware of the strong rain wind!

It is likely to be a hot day today, however...

I wish you a nice day…


(222nd day of 2017)

Today is the day of the atomic bomb at Nagasaki

Grandma was born, during the war

Nagasaki fled from the bullet of the plane,

A moment of terror that can’t be imagined...

I hope, disputes all over the world will disappear...

There was a big earthquake in the Sichuan province, in China;

I heard about it on the news, the damage caused is large, It seems…

Today, the forecast predicts 37 ℃ here...

And last night too, I woke up at 1:00, 3:00 and 4:00 AM. Today is one long day starting at 4:00 AM

A hot day, with a heat warning alarm, however, I wish you a warm day...


(223rd day of 2017)

Before I knew it, some bees built a bee-hive beside my front door on the overhang. I didn’t notice that until today.

There was quite a large scale earthquake in the Kanto area this morning again. We even felt the earthquake here as well.

I haven’t slept well recently, I felt like I was going to cry when I thought about everybody's feelings.

My feelings are very mixed, it is something I have to put up with, something I have to accept, something I have to face looking forward.

My emotions are overwhelmingly flooding into my mind all at once, but I have to stand strong…

I couldn’t find any words that can explain how I feel… I am just trying to be patient and stand strong with trust… thinking about your warm wishes… might give us hope..

I am just trying to be patient and stay hopeful.

Sorry if I am talking nonsense…

I believe everybody’s thoughts will reach… I am not good at speaking lightly and casually about serious situations, so I can’t find any words now…

Just cry when you feel like crying, and laugh when you feel like laughing…

and please believe in tomorrow!

I also believe in tomorrow, and I will continue to perform on stage from now on.

I believe in our future. The flame will not be gone as long as your hope continues.

I am sorry that I can’t explain this well with the right words…

He is our precious friend, now and forever.

It was a rainy, cloudy, humid Thursday.


(224th day of 2017)

It is a national holiday today.

We had a light drizzle this morning.

It was much cooler than the past few hot days.The rain felt nice, and the wind felt gentle.

Even if I got wet with misty rain,

I wasn’t soaking wet, the rain ran right off my skin.

I wonder if there will be a lot of people in the city when I leave…

I wonder if there are a lot of people today because of the Obon holiday...

I hope you have a peaceful Obon holiday.


225th day of 2017)

We had rain on Saturday morning.

It was the beginning of a long day.

It seemed like a cloudy, rainy day...but it turned into a clear day.

The glaring sun felt hot; however, it was not burning hot because we had rain. Even so, I sweat anyway…

The countdown to the LIVE concert is about to start…

I will do my best today, sweating again…

I hope today will be a wonderful day...


(226th day of 2017)

There was a clear sky in the morning today.

Cicadas were chirping, and bees and wasps were flying around in the morning.

Finally, today is the last day before our concert. Today again, I went to our rehearsal by train.

There were a lot of families that were carrying big suitcases to the station.

After I got home today, I went to my parents’ house and I lit the candles in the Kamidana and asked my grandparents to watch over me on stage the next day.

My grandma used to say she wanted to watch my performance even before I joined WORLD ORDER…

I always gave a thumbs up to my grandparents before I went on stage, and I left my house after I saw their responses.

So, even after they passed away, I always say “Ittekimasu (I am going)" to my grandparents’ picture before I leave.

Since I was a child, I have always been shy and I could always easily get nervous.

Even if they are not here with me anymore, they still give me strength as I live each day.

Everybody has someone who is precious to them,

who is important to them…

I will live each day remembering my grandparents,

and keep them in my heart.

I hope you all have a wonderful Obon holiday…

Great work everybody for last week.

I will do my best for the three concerts that will start today.

I don’t know what will happen, but…

May a gentle wind blow into everyone's heart...

May each day and each hour of the new week

be filled with peace and warmth as usual…

It is going to be okay,

it is going to be alright.

The wind will blow. Let’s feel that wind...and live.

【Remember to keep kindness and a warm heart.

May a smiling wind blow throughout the world…

It is going to be okay. It will lead to tomorrow!!】

To the new week,

Off we go!
