Conservation

"As a member of the Amamo Revival Collaboration in Kanagzawa-Hakkei, Tokyo Bay Area, I enjoy farming and planting eelgrass not only for the next generation but for my own knowledge. I also have a marine art workshop for children as one of the organization’s activity, and always wonder at children's art. "
