"On Solitary Island in the Distant Sea"
Mixed Media,24.2x33.3cm,2021

Solitary island in the distant sea. But it doesn't seem to be uninhabited. The islanders huddle together and help each other out, and the shore is home to sea birds. Seabirds gather on the shore, and the island is also home to unique creatures. The islanders live in the midst of harsh nature while taking care of nature. I drew this picture while imagining such an island.

There was a time when I liked to research remote islands. There are many remote islands in Japan. I used to go there by ferry or high-speed boat. My ancestors' graves are in Kagawa Prefecture, so I went to Shodoshima, Ogijima, and Megijima while visiting their graves. Also, there are islands in Lake Biwa in the neighboring Shiga Prefecture. There are also islands in Lake Biwa in neighboring Shiga Prefecture, such as Okinoshima and Chikubujima.
I would like to go there again.
The islands in Kyoto Prefecture are located in the Sea of Japan, but they are all uninhabited, and many of them are off-limits to the general public for reasons such as nature conservation.
