Biography

English | Japanese

“It’s ulcerative colitis,” the doctor told her. It is a disease that causes inflammation and sores in the lining of the large intestine. She was only 22 at the time, and suffered for the next 14 years.Living was physically painful.She couldn’t eat properly, couldn’t sleep, not to mention the bleeding.Outside stimuli such as sunlight, noise, and even the wind was overwhelming.She gave up on living, just waiting for the end.One day, it came to her.“I want to live as I want!” her heart cried. She decided to live freely, to not care about what others say or think. “The world is as you see it”.Realizing this, she broke free from her chains. As if it were a miracle, she was cured. As if she was never sick. As if it was all a lie. She began writing her own blog, delivering motivational speeches, and even writing and recording music. She loved drawing and painting since she was a little girl, but held back due to disapproval by others. Now, she has been drawing and painting to her heart’s content. Her paintings are freehand and  spontaneous, just the way she lives her life. Like a child, we can all live a carefree life, filled with dreams and hope. No matter who you are, or what you’re going through, she urges us to “Live in the now, freely and happily”. Join with Yutan and many others as we go on an adventure to build a wonderful world.
