It has taken me a long time to update this page because after recovering from a summer cold,
I seemed to have done too many sit-ups at the gym and got back pain, which put me in bed for a while.
I finally went to an art exhibition that I had been wanting to go to for a while.
It was an exhibition of “Nizo Yamamoto,” who has been the art director of Ghibli films for many years.
Ghibli is not only known for the grandeur and fun of its content,
Many people are impressed by the beauty of the images, including the background art.
At the exhibition, there were many beautiful works that cannot be described in words,
such as detailed works, warm works, compositions, and beautiful colors.
Mr. Nizo Yamamoto passed away during the exhibition.
One of his works at the exhibition was titled “Cherry Blossoms Dancing at Hamamatsu Castle,
One of the works in the exhibition, “Cherry Blossoms Dancing on Hamamatsu Castle,”
depicted his hometown castle and cherry blossoms in the springtime.
It was signed March 20, 2023, so we do not know if it was his last work,
but it was a valuable piece that was created five months before he passed away.
It seems that there is a traveling exhibition, so I recommend that people,
including Ghibli lovers, go to view it.
