〈Return〉 is a small book published during my exhibition wth the same name held in spring 2018. It is an extension of the exhibition. There are 10 stories in this small book. Each story is a chapter about the food or drink I experienced in my Shikoku journey in Japan.
I especially love to visit the usual places where the locals spend their daily lives. No matter the coffee shops that serve only dark-roasted coffee, or the self-serviced udon canteens, the feeling of familarity and the sense of daily routine seemed to be both welcoming and rejecting for tourists. How I wish I were a real local, to enjoy the “usual” Japanese places without barrier.
