Last week, I asked my musician friends to send me information they would like to share. I’ve received few online events!
Again to musician friends, please send me your Facebook page, YouTube channel/video, link to your albums, online performance Ads, music lessons, where to follow you, etc. I want to feature them on my newsletter!
As I mentioned in my last newsletter, I printed a small amount of my first photo book. My first baby steps. It’s called “雪景 – Sekkei. 空景 – Kukei.” If you are interested, please scroll down.

To friends who bought my 2021 calendar, thank you so much for your support! I printed a small amount of my first photo book which are my first baby steps.
About the title. Japanese “Sekkei” means snowscape. “Sekkei” is combination of these words: Yuki (snow) and Kei (scenery, landscape view, scene.) ”Kukei”, I made up this word to go with “Sekkei”. I used a combination of the words: Ku (sky, space) and Kei to title my photos of sky.
So here are my humble works, “Sekkei. Kukei”. (11.5 x 8.5 inch, 22 pages)
