Nov. 17, Participated in a poetry reading event in Ikenoue, Tokyo

On Friday, November 17, I participated in a poetry reading event at Garigari, a live bar in Ikenoue, Tokyo.

Ms. Joy Waller, the co-organizer of the event, also offered me the opportunity to be a performer at the launch party for the latest issue of Tokyo Poetry Journal, a poetry magazine for which she serves as Co-Editor. It was a great honor, and I am very grateful.

Although it was the first time for me to submit my work to the journal, my dream of being published in the journal also came true. Thank you very much to the editors for featuring my English tanka works.
