Three years have passed since I came to Finland. The light, and the interweave of waters and forests captivated me and continue to fascinate me. In Japan I thought a lot about the power of nature and I tried to express its limitless strength in abstract images. I was looking for new ways of expression using metal, textiles and oxidants along side traditional Japanese painting mediums. But my experience of Finnish nature gave me new inspiration and completely changed me.

The council is the highest authority and responsible for the most important decisions in the city such as the decision for the city budget. The Council also decides on the municipal income tax as well as the real estate tax rates.
