Thank you for coming to my Crystal Bow & Piano Concert in San Francisco Bay

I just came back from San Francisco three days ago.


It was beautifully sunny and warm there, so we didn’t need overcoats. Some people even wore T –shirts!


It was rainy when I arrived at JFK airport in New York, so I was at a loss at getting used to the weather in New York City again.


San Francisco is a special place for my family because we lived there from 1993 to 1999.

The day after I arrived in SF, I went to Downtown San Francisco to meet with my friends.

I’ve been back to visit S.F.Bay many times after going back Japan, but I hadn’t been downtown, so I was excited to see everything in the city.

Then, my performance was held the following day.


It was an intimate performance, held at my friend Sachiko’s house.
I was very happy to have my concert there because she organized it so well and made a comfortable space for the audience and me.
I really enjoyed playing.


My friend’s house was in a secluded neighborhood, surrounded by trees, so I felt like I was playing in the forest.

The house was built nicely on the hill and I was surprised to find out that the house was built by her husband!


We placed a piano in front of a tall window, so I was able to feel the outside during my performance.




My crystal bowl makes nice sounds every time I play it.
There was enough time for me to have a rehearsal, and the concert started.


During the performance, there was a stronger reverberation of sounds than during the rehearsal.


The sounds lasted longer, as if they would never end.




I thought the sounds reverberated through all of us- the audience, Sachiko and her family’s hearts and the environment surrounding us.


We made the sounds together, so it became more beautiful.


I always feel the sounds are different each time I play, because I can feel people’s warm-hearts come through to me.



I can’t wait to play again and again, because every time I play the crystal bowl, I feel like a pipe, connecting the earth to space, and people all over the world to peace.
