KEICHO AWARDS

This year 2017, I have been chosen for the creation of the Keicho awards.

The Keicho awards is held every year in Spain and rewards one japanese company and one spanish company.

Nissan and Iberia were the two companies selected for the award this year, the reason why they won the awards is their contribution to the innovation and technology.

The Keicho Awards are organized by the CEJE, the Japan-Spain Business Circle in Spain.

I was also lucky to be invited to the 2nd dinner reception CEJE-CEOE to see the awards ceremony . You can read more details about the gala in this link.( this article only in Spanish available )

The name of these awards comes from theht 400 years ago sailing the ship called Datemaru, that is represented in my drawing with raising sun.

    2 weeks ago by nagatayakyoto New opening flagship store Muji Passeig de Gracia Barcelona, I was asked to paint the building of the new shop of 'Union and Phoenix' for their tote bag. I did the painting thinking with the minimal concept of the brand. Hoy ha sido la preinauguración de la tienda Flagship Muji en Passeig de Gracia, me pidieron que dibujara el edificio de 'La Unión y Fénix' donde está situada la tienda, el edificio tiene muchos detalles pero he intentado plasmar el concepto más minimalista posible como el de la marca. ,バルセロナのメインストリート、パセオデグラシアに #無印良品の旗艦店が明日11月30日オープンします。光栄なことにオープン記念トートバッグの絵を描かせて頂きました。お店が入っているLa Unión y fénix という建物をシンプルに表現しました。ありがとうございました。  #muji   #flagship   #totebag   #japanesestore   #mitsurunagata

KAKIZOME THE FIRST CALLIGRAPHY OF THE YEAR

書き初めKAKIZOME :The first calligraphy of the year

We normally write our wishes, target, or motto of the year. This year l have written 日々是好日(nichi nichi kore kounichi) which is one of the Zen phrase that l like. This phrase has many meanings

  • Every day can be good day depend on your attitude or your thought.
  • It is important to live the present.
  • We have to do the best to make the better day.
  • Just accept the day as it is.

I will try to remember this phrase, when l feel down, this year!!

The kakizome can be burned in the dondoyaki day read more about this tradition on my post
