＜Honorary Director, Kitakyushu Manga Museum＞
Kitakyushu has a "vibrant energy of its locale" to nurture the arts and has produced many artists and cartoonists, and the Kitakyushu Manga Museum plays a part in this by supporting cartoonists who have passion and aspirations. The four small panels are large canvases with unlimited possibilities containing colors and stories. Express yourselves with unrestricted ideas and imagination, just like the starry sky in a faraway distance.
