"We must not forget that humans are also part of nature."
The charm of Yaeyama seen through pointillism

A lover of living things and nature, he moved to Ishigaki Island more than 20 years ago. This is his first collection of works that brings out the charm of Yaeyama with a unique worldview created through pointillism. Each work is delicate and warm, and sometimes speaks to us like an illustrated encyclopedia, and sometimes like a picture book, making this a collection of works in a new style.
