The Japanese can use kanji hiragana letter, katakana, alphabet properly.
We built culture while permitting the matter that there was for a long time and
the new culture that we did not know.
The Nitten arts and Crafts is the symbol definitely.
When we have a glimpse of a wide work, we feel that tradition and contemporary
fusion or confrontment have been repeated.
The present piriod which culture diversifies.How will it change from now on?
When a artist announcing the prophetic work becomes no sense,
Nitten will certainly follow the decline.My generation must be aware that it is asked it.
In addition, we must convey this in the next generation.
We greet important time.

Ishikawa Prefecture began a measure in search of the opinion from the expert of the American
New York design in order to wrestle with the problem.
Curator Ron Labaco was invited and visited me just after arrival.
We sheared exchange of opinions, but a problem is not a so simple thing.
Thing is not must change or have to change, the high judgment is hard required.
I hope that a new action comes out of high judgment by him.
But I am a matter of course, but it is a necessary condition to make the good works for people.

audiences in Yamagata Kokusai Hotel.

And it is my father.
There is always with a complicated feeling as the eldest son.
And I have not been dutiful to my parents so far.
He was just working after presented a Cultural Medal from late fall until today.
I could share that time for the first time may have watched a figure of father for the first time.
The Hokkoku Newaspaper which sponsored a grand celebration gave great aid to me.
I want to talk about thanks deeply.
This is high school book, on the right Montori and left myself.

I have a lot of memories in my high school days.
I entered the Tamagawagakuen high school in Tokyo from Kanazawa,
and it was about time when I started live in the dormitory in the school began.
There was the guy who always kicked sandbags by Thai style boxing.
"Attu." Oh, two ,,,," he was not able to speak Japanese.
It was me first to have made friends while talking in English.
After graduation from high school, he studied in U.S.A.
And five years later, I finished a university studied in the Boston University graduate school.
I met him again in such one day, the line in the bank accidentally.
There was a girl friend to him, and I was invited to the supper in an apartment of the cohabitation life.
And I did not meet from that time again.
He came in families in Tokyo from Thailand, and the alumni association of the high school was opened.
The girl friend of that time became his wife, and two children were born.
His and my photograph appeared in the classbook of the high school.
In celebration of a reencounter, I took a photograph with the same pose again.
It was over time definitely.
It was dropped in at my home of Kanazawa with pet dog Nero last year.
And it was the first time when a dog sat down on a tea-ceremony room of my home.
Because Nero is important partner for him who lost sight.
One year passed since that, and Mr Iwasaki came for Nihonbashi, Tokyo Takashimaya private exhibition.
I explain a color while he is holding work in his hand.
The baseball of the radio may have been totally the commentary that I seemed to relay.
It may have been the time when each other experienced it for the first time.
I went out for supper together afterwards.
I take a taxi.
Nero sits in his step.
The restaurant which came must climb the steep stairs.
Nero guides us while leading it.
We finish a dinner and move to BAR.
We walk 20 minutes according to Showa Street together.
There were a signal and the pedestrian crossing on the way, too.
The action of Nero was a faithful thing superior to a person.
It was the time that I could not know so far.
Nobody can know the invisible world of iwasaki.
And his effort overcomes all.

4/3 I tried to go back to Kanazawa in the evening finished its preparation,
it became not go back for low pressure bomb. Plane is canceled,
trains canceled,also many areas of Japan fell into panic.
I decided to go back the next day reluctantly.
4/4 Morning, storm subsided, was like leaving a blue sky. To return to Kanazawa,
there is a choice of two of the airplane or train. I choose the train,
because I'd be cloudless views of the mountain, heading to Tokyo Station.
However, that announcement in the Joetsu Shinkansen Echigo-Yuzawa,
"Hakutaka Express was canceled,It was going blind spot of my discerning.
They did not finish restoration of the train.

in Rochester of 1998.
The main meeting place could include Europe and China as well as United States in Seattle
convention center, and it was the participant more than 6,000.
Because even a well-known ceramist, an art museum curator, a gallary,
U.S. students gather, various interchange is planned.
The place of the consultation that students enter with many universities is established,
and Rochester Institute of Technology,
the Taiwan national Tainan art art university where I act as a visiting professor,
As for what a foreign student and the student returning to school include it,
and can learn various people, such an environmental thing may become the big factor.
I receive education in U.S.A., and it is my ceramic art life to have continued katsudo.
In U.S.A., a concept called the tradition differs from Japan really.
If there is not the system of the living national treasure, the open call for participants exhibitions do not exist.
The concept called the independent does not exist, too.
I learn and whom am active to encounter, whom to how?
I can be proud to Japan originally.
In addition, we must may learn.
It is poor ability, but wants to change the Japanesecraft arts in the occlude state with a certain will person.
I became such a feeling while meeting a teacher and an old friend in U.S.A.

There was the concept of the craft.
Yoshida Syoitsu was a patron for the Tottori Mingei Art.
However, it is old days. We must reproduce along the same feeling.
I wonder if it is not the fact same in neither Tottori nor Kanazawa, the all area of Japan.
Miss.Arimori said that "I want to convey a meaning of (a cord) handed in relay road race",
and the tradition may be to be same meaning.
The open campus which began in Tottori environment University.
A chosen lecturer performed a class to get on future course consultation while explaining each field for local

The greatest business group covering all the areas is this group.
A general meeting was held in Kanazawa, and I was invited to the lecture.
The Hokuriku Shinkansen was in three years to the opening of business.
It is two and a half hours at time to need it by Kanazawa from Tokyo.
The cooperation between areas becomes important.
How can we direct each charm?
If one wisdom that an old person devised was feng shui,
I talked about it being with the clue which drew charm to inspect it.
I am a progress position, and, as for this gallery talking continuing, a prizewinner explains own work every year.
As for them,reconsidering own work. the guest deepens crafts understanding.
I am convinced that this is important for the craft arts of Kanazawa in the future.

PTA役員と先生方とともに記念撮影／with PTA Board members and The teacher of the executive officer.
The last work as the PTA Chairperson at Ishikawa Prefectural Izumigaoaka High School,
is the congratulatory address at the graduation ceremony.
To be frank, I was not able to sleep for this speeches.
Consciousness is high in the best entrance into a school of higher grade school,
a teacher and a parent and a student in Ishikawa prefecture.
I thought seriously about what I talked.
But children will not remember it.
As for the story of the Chairperson at PTA!Who talked about my high school days and I do not remember it.
The expression sang a national anthem in unison and was solemn in conformity with an ancient rite.
But this one year was the great experience tfor my life.
アンデロイドの開発で知られ、ロボット工学者である石黒 浩 教授は、
Congratulations on graduates and parents, graduation.
I feel really honored that I obtained such an opportunity as Chairperson at PTA today.
I am deeply appereciated for all of thoughtful words from presodent Murai Tsutomu and
received a benefit of high education from Ishikawa Prefecture administration.
By the way, what should I talk about now?Because I thought until morning,
I was able to hardly sleep.For all of you, it was at very important time,
and I decided to write it down today.
I was not good student in my high school days.
There is not in my memory by the speech of the PTA Chairperson at PTA at the graduation ceremony.
I am standing here and feel a marvel to myself speaking it in front of all of you now.
I have the bond with the friend of high school days.
The memory is still clear.However, until today, my life was not so easy.
It is presumptuous, but, in the experience, wants to have you hear a story.
All of you ticked away time for these three years.
In studies, the strenuous result is put on a certificate for club activities again.
I sympathize with the perseverance heartily.
Something to have been splendid experience to be provided if I make an effort hard.
Further difficulty may wait from now on.
The effort that experienced will not do;, however if you still continue to making the efforts,
the light will come the several times better result.
There is the word "Learning from the past.
I made up the word "onshinchiko".In a new challenge, we will learn the past.
It in the present language for new tradition.
Professor Ishiguro Akira is known for development of robot scientist. he said that
"the science means nobody has looked, starts from arts and touch a plan and add plasticity"
I also think that art work means that is new creation.
Genuine techniques and new things changes society.
When science and art perform together, it will be culture.
Even if the strength of a nation of Japan,
the dignity had the sympathy from the other countries, it has fallen greatly.
As Masahiko Fujiwara given a lecture recently was felt uneasy about,
we worshiped it as a Japanese over a year and it is without Bushido mind on the faith of
each other. But it is not to be all of nations.
The nuclear power plant of Fukushima.
To an abolished furnace, it is said that it takes 30 years or 40 years.
You are my age when you do it with 35 years.In the future of our country,
it is certainly entrusted to your way of life.
An adult is selfish.We forgot feng shui and Confucianism do turning to God to help in a Shinto shrine.
students wishes that study is continued, and easy to run for the business.
Business people wishes for their business goes better,
Fiserman wishes that fishery to be able to sell in good harvests, a safe
thing,the office worker wishes that gets a high salary, and not losing job.
And the young person expects marriage, a child, home, the peace and security,
as the old man needs person necessary to have parson for taking care with in low medical cost.
Who will be to protect from a natural disaster and a disaster?
There is an experienced person with advanced each domain skills.
And specialist in the future is necessary.
In your future, I feel like not in the future when we obey a social trend now.
A teacher and the parent of the high school cannot decide your future.
You should think by yourself and must advance.
I go to many countries for my work.And patriotism springs out.
Of course our country is not only a dark topic.
We do our best.You change for this country, and please become a member with us.
In a new challenge, please survive life in the future with a feeling of thankfulness.
It is all of you to carry Japan.
To parents, I thank you for all having understanding,
cooperation for PTA activity.And please value the bond in all of you from today in a limit.
I pray for everyone and it is my address.
