Seen from the south-facing slope of Mt. Haneda, the beautiful, red sun is a striking sight as it sets to the west, beyond the fields and the rice paddies of Kanto Plain that stretches all the way to Mt. Fuji.
In this rice-growing area at the edge of the mountains where the plains start, I wanted to build a tower for the dragon god as an effigy to protect the rain.
My sculpture always embodies the wish to be touched by a great, invisible something.
