I visited Okinawa for thefirst time in 2014 and met Shinko-san by accident. He had
alcoholism and schizophrenia but I didn't know that. Whenever I visited Okinawa, he always welcomed me. He seemed to suffer from loneliness and getting older. He finished his life by himself in
2017 and I knew how much he took care of me. I keep thinking of him through my photos much more than before he passed away.
