My friends and I were returning from Mt Asama to Tokyo, stopped at a Highway Oasis in Gunma Prefecture when he remembered Tomihiro Museum was in the vicinity. With help of maps, and directions from locals, we finally found ourselves on Route 122, heading toward Tomihiro Hoshino's home village of Azuma. It was the perfect day (Thurs) to visit - non-peak season. In the quiet and beautiful setting of the museum, we soaked in his story (through pictures, exhibits, video), savoured his amazing artwork and poetry. English translations of his poems were a great help for me to appreciate his thought, feelings, struggles. If I were to just focus on his painting, I can easily conclude that his painting is superb and forget that he is paralysed from neck down, and paints such beautiful pieces with his mouth. I was awed and humbled that he whom many would have thought wasted his life (when he suffered an accident at age 24) was given a second chance at life. Through his suffering and pain is birthed a depth of life many can only wish for. Truly, he inspired me that day!
