Recalling the many times, since childhood, that I climbed up and down these ancient and historical stone steps leading to the golden Muroo temple near my hometown in Nara, I strived to depict the steps as a reflection of my life, up to now, and the long journey ahead. Step by step, I will endeavor to move closer to my dreams, fondly looking back on those cherished childhood memories.
