These days, picture books are popular among not only mothers and children, but young people in Japan. Some magazines about picture books have started and acclaimed by young women from the majority who want to enjoy handicrafts to serious artists. Some singers and actors say "I wanted to become a picture books writer or illustrator" in their interviews.
Maybe you think that this movement as usual things. I think, at least in Japan, it is a change.

I've been interested in cultural exchanges from my childhood, so I'd like to write something about picture books and our culture in Japan and far-east Asia.
