CM: Tsuyoshi Ikeda's photograph captures his younger sister, Kichigo Wakayagi as Geisha in White Kimono in "Nagauta Awaodoriboy" at Hiroshima in July 2003. "Awaodoriboy" is the legend of Awa of the Tokushima prefecture. The dancer sings "Nagauta", a popular long song of the Edo period (1603-1867) accompanied by the 'syamisen', the well-known traditional Japanese string instrument. Kichigo Wakayagi's movements evoke the mix of life's love and pain.
