Asahi TV Interview 朝日放送インタビュー

Asahi TV came to interview me and film my work for the programme COCOIRO. It’ll be aired at the end of October. I’ll know the details nearer the day.  It was a long day – 4 hours filming for 2 minutes on air! Good fun though!

ABC 朝日放送さんが私のインタビューに来て、作品などの撮影をされました。ココイロという番組のためで、10月の末に放送されます。詳細はその内分かります。2分間の番組のため4時間の撮影!長かったですが楽しかったです。
