This golden week was the longest holiday, for 10 days.
It seemed many people went abroad.But I didn’t go abroad this year.That is because I’m going to Mexico and Cuba about for 12 days next month.
But this golden week was very long.So I had to make plans to go out. I couldn’t just stay in my house.
For the first half, I went to Tokyo and enjoyed delicious meal and went to the outlet mall in Karuizawa.
But the second half was very hard and busy.That’s because・・・The 70th Sun-kk anniversary will soon come next month.
This anniversary ceremony is divided into three parts.First is the anniversary ceremony, including time capsule, planting trees and so on. The second is the anniversary party. It will be held at the seminar house. And the third is the memorial book.
70th memorial book consists of three books.
One is about the 70 years history of Sun-kk. The second book is a cartoon version of the history. And the third has Sun-kk’s future forecast pictures.
I helped make the anniversary book. I find document errors and I had to find good photos to match the documents. And I also had to write captions to those photos.
Those works could have only done by a person who knows the history of Sun-kk very well. Mr.Yuu Kawakami ( my son) is responsible for this project. But he just joined Sun-kk 7 years ago, so he hardly knows about old Sun-kk. So I helped him.
It took long time. We spent more hours than I thought. It started 10 in the morning every day in the factory. And I worked until 2 or 3 midnight at home. I worked harder during the second half of this holiday than usual. But I was happy to work together with my son. We completed our joint work nicely.
But I had another big job. The theme of this 70 anniversary is 温故知新in Japanese. 温故知新is to know the history of Sun-kk and to think about the future of it.
We made 17 groups and we asked you to think about the future of Sun-kk. I made it a contest and top three teams will stand on the stage in front of the 150 people on the day of the ceremony.
All team made fantastic works. All the teams made great works. The managing director Mr. Aruga and I decided the best three the other day.
When I saw those fantastic works of yours, I thought that I have to make mine. So I started making my Sun-kk future forecast map from the last day of golden week.
First, I went to buy thick paper to 赤エンピツ. (stationery store). I painted the background with Liquitex (acrylic paint)
The most important thing in making a work is to have a complete final image clearly. Of couse I had a complete image of my dream. And I painted and pasted them. The work was a lot of fun. Recently, I didn’t have a chance to make works like these. So I had a lot of fun.
What do you think about the quality of the work ?
Of course I think my work is the best!
