Childhood Memories in the Cards

Blog 11-13

I lived in big cities, small towns, and the countryside in Japan when I was a child.  Like everyone, I have many memories from my childhood. I remember the beautiful  Koi fish in the small pond in my grandma’s garden, the plum trees that my mom made plum pickles from, the uncomfortable kimono I wore for my 7 year turning of age celebration which I hated, roaming with my father and my dog in the mountain, picking mushrooms and persimmon in autumn, the beautiful lanterns lighting up the summer festival at night, and of course, the beautiful cherry blossoms in the springtime.

This “Konnichiwa paper collection” takes me back to my childhood and reminds me of all my precious childhood memories. Inspired by the designs, I transformed the paper into greeting cards, so I can share the importance of childhood memories.
