Already my 5th trip to Japan! What time passes quickly! But I go from discounted in discovery, of pleasure in pleasure....The first time I came, I was like a small girl amazed with wonder at all.

My eyes were opened wide in front of all the beauties of Japanese Culture, my head turned in all the directions to the search of least information, and my heart passed from emotion in emotion.

The years pass and this emotion is always here. I am always dazzled and impressed by all his sensitivities to Japanese Culture. The participation in the residence of artist in town of Seto is a real pleasure.To show its work, to explain it, communicate it to other people are in adorable moment of happiness. I have much chance. I would like to thank you for all comprehension and the indulgence, with you had in my connection.

Oh my god! What of patience, of generosity throughout my stay!
A large thanks you with the entire organization, which was perfect.
