I invite you on a voyage around the world
This is Captain Taki Hikaru.
Ladies and gentlemen, I invite you on a voyage around the world by means of drawings and paintings of mine.
We go through Japan and from the East China Sea our ship will set course for the West.
Passing the Suez Canal, we will go around Europe and we will cross the Atlantic Ocean.
After that we will go around the North American continent and passing the Panama Canal,
we will cross the Pacific Ocean and will come back to Japan.
We will travel around 54 places, based on my experiences and knowledge all over the world;
so I am very happy that if any of them were shared by people living with each other in this era.
And next time I hope that you will invite us to pilot in order to see the new world to come.

Let's start a first step to world journey from the place of Japan that is the most important connection of me.
Recently, over a hundred of years we Japanese, including me, are brought up by the Modern Culture of Western Europe.
Honda started its first step in oversea business in the United States and, its market success there raised up Honda widely. For me also the United States is the deepest influencing country in the world
This solo internet exhibition has needed much cooperation of many people and I especially here express thanks to the following persons:
My friend YAMASHITA Manabu, since my junior high school age, dear friend who learns not only art but many areas; always proper advice and he with his friend Mr. SASAKI Koichi assisted me in broad area of all my solo exhibitions.
My friend ALAN M. GADDIE, has taught me English over 10 years made efforts to examine all English of this exhibition carefully, and always encouraged me on my decisions and activities.
My familiar colleague of Suiboku Art, Mr. HAGIWARA Hideharu knows well about cameras and computers, who took many photographs for this exhibition.
My son Keiichi, who is an expert on IT made this internet system rapidly and smoothly.
