That person is me.

This video is a re-edited version of the scenery of Suzu that I shot 5 years ago.
The video captured the transition from the heavenly comfort of summer to the melancholy autumn after the traditional festival.
Suzu is a town that carries speechless beauty.
I have decided to make and release this video in the hope that people would see the true nature of Suzu through this video, rather than those destroyed and eye-covering sceneries that are shown on the news everyday.

Food, water, baths, toilets, fuel, diapers, clean clothes, sanitary items, privacy, emotional care, entertainment, soft beds and security. Separation from closest people and the fear of violence we are exposed to and the whirlwind of information we are caught up in. That person is me who has endured countless suffering because of the destruction of my city and the lack of access to the things I need. Let's think about what we can do and what we want for our suffering selves and give it to them. It can be anything. Donating money is great. You can ask for the support of the government. It can be sending supplies, it can be entertainment to relieve tension, it can be praying or thinking for a while. If it is something you can do for you. This is happening to them and to me. That person who is suffering is me. 

However, I am able to sleep in a warm bed with my family and have enough food to eat. I cannot experience their suffering, no matter what I say. That is why I must not stop imagining, thinking, and acting. 

 Please tell me your thoughts

- I would like to include links to websites of organizations and individuals who are supporting the affected areas.
For example, Fundraising activities like donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of T-shirts is also an excellent way to do so.
It doesn't matter what you do. I believe that the more options I have, the more we will be able to help.
I appreciate your cooperation.

- If you would like to use the video or need it for public viewing, please feel free to contact me and I will send you the download link.
