On June 22, I performed tanka reading at Kanagawa Museum of Modern Literature.

Thanks to the planning and coordination by Kanagawa division of Taishu Bungaku Kenkyu-kai, the Popular Literature Study Association, I performed "Fukushima", which is a seriese of tanka which I wrote after visiting the nuclear power plant in Fukusima in Fukusima prefecture Japan, as well as "Prayer for peace", which I often perform overseas.

Mr. Genichi Yamamoto, the chairman of the Japan P.E.N. Club environment committee, presented the report and his impression about his visit to Fukushima nuclear power plant. He also talked about his perspective on Camus' "Pest" as a literature of disaster.

I would like to thank everyone who made all the arrangements for this event including venue reservation, as well as to all the attendants who came to the event in spite of the rainy weather.
