“The perfect balance of complexity and simplicity.”

Hiroshi’s literary expression is sparse, but his words are dense with content and thought.  He often has a lot to say, but he chooses his words carefully. Sometimes, all it takes is one word from him to change your perspective or make you feel better.

He invites us to walk with him through the world of words, feelings, and thoughts. He encourages us to take small bites, like a meal made just for us. He reminds us that silence is an invitation to express creation and helps to touch the essence of nature.

He tells us that sensing space and being in it is very important and that a good result does not come from pushing, but from walking, moving, thinking, becoming excited, and connecting with our story and experience.

Hiroshi says that when we reach out, we are inviting the universe to respond. Sometimes, the response comes in the form of a book, or another form of communication. We may not know what will happen next, but it is possible that we will open up our potential in ways that we never thought possible.

Hiroshi’s sayings are like verbal acupuncture – healing, toning, balancing. They’re inspired by nature and in harmony with it.

“Mystic, wanderer, tracker, seeker, finder and knower. “

Hiroshi’s roots are in Japan, but his nature and sensibility transcend the boundaries of the imperial island nation. The word-masks are rich, the stylistic idiosyncratically pure and minimalist, touching on being in many dimensions.

Combining the timeless with his writings, Ikigai is brightly conscious, emulating the wabi-sabi dimension. Walks in the footsteps of Matsuo Bashō and Saigyō in his journeys, mastering esotericism and martial arts, and is moderately vigorous, elastic and flexible in movement.
