Japan – The place where I would Love to Live…

by ElvenEleganceAugust 11, 2015

I would love to live in Japan

My goal is to inspire people in Japan and internationally as well as to promote Japanese Japanese Culture, especially the traditional cultures that exist in Japan.

Japanese culture provides me with constant inspiration and I would love the chance to live there one day soon.

If I had the chance to go to Japan again, I wouldn’t hesitate to go the same day if possible.

I am looking for sponsors.

 

Hokkaido

I am especially interested in the Island of Hokkaido. I love cold weather and nature and from what I have found from research and seen from pictures, it is the perfect place for me to be. The skiing in Hokkaido looks amazing.

Art and Creative Projects

I am intersted in creative projects and collaborations with other artists.

I recently did a collaboration with Flute Ninja where he played the Shakuhachi flute with one of the songs I made.
