CM: Tsuyoshi Ikeda's photograph captures his younger sister, Kichigo Wakayagi as Geisha in Black Kimono in "Nagauta Oogijishi" at Hiroshima in December 2004. "Oogijishi" is a well-known Geisha dace of the proseprous Edo period (1603-1867), evoking the transition of the four seasons. 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.
