Sept. 22, at ANIMUSIC Organological Congress in Belmonte, Portugal

On the last day of ANIMUSIC Organological Congress2019, I presented Japanese and English tanka reading.
The venue was a hotel & restaurant "Pousada Conventode Belmonte", a tasteful masonry building.

I was very happy because I was allowed to use this wonderful facility, where the lighting and sound rebibration are beautifully designed.
The artists from many countries such as Lithuania, Israel, Italy, France, Russia, Netherland, and the host country Portugal, gave me moving comments.

I would like to keep them in mind and continue my performance from now on.
A photographer of the municipal government came, and I felt very much obliged.

I extend my sincere gratitude toward those who listened my presentation with tears in their eyes, for many of them Japanese or English was not their mother tongue.

I will conitinue making efforts to deliver heart-to-heart message through my performance.
