I am a bilingual (English/Japanese) art educator, cut-paper illustrator, author, actor and speaker.
June 1972, Tokyo. I can’t believe I overslept. Moving day. Of all days to oversleep! Transient beings that we are, we all move, right? But concern for my personal well-being and safety these last few months prompted my move. I spent this week at the Tanabe’s in Harajuku. I glance at the wristwatch from my dad. Time. Will I be able to make it there ON TIME?
My Real SUPERHERO
My Real SUPERHERO How often do you have an opportunity to meet a real Superhero everyday? The truth is, in every household, a powerful, magical Superhero waits patiently to help you create happiness and befriend you for your lifetime. According to my mother, the first time I met my Superhero was at the age of 3, when I sat on the floor creating paper castles, kings and queens. Since then, my special friend, my Superhero, has brought me years of happiness.
