This evening while on top of Mt. Tsukuba, I met this very interesting
man who`s name is Ichiro Okamura. Ichiro-san holds a Master license
of Japanese Amateur Radio (1.9MHz-77GHz), which allows him to talk
to the very few others with a very narrow beam of micro-wave radio. He
also owns many other types of radio communication equipment along
with assortment of radio antennas that is jammed packed in his car.


Flower Artist- Toizumi (Toi-chun), came out to see
me at my studio in Yasato to discuss our exhibition
together in March 9th~14th, 2010 in Shibuya, Tokyo.
