To my friend Masa and his adorable family,

for their amazing hospitality and generosity, their pure kindness and their precious help...and the sushi-onsen diet ;)

Travelling alone, I miss my family and staying with Masa´s family has been a real gift of love and affection.

To Kumiko, for sharing her small flat, for the endless conversations about art, religion, love and life ;), for her precious translator :)

To Masa`s friends, for the amazing and beautiful time in Nagano (sorry I didn`t make it to Yokohama)

And to Daisuke, Daniel and Masa OF COURSE ;))
