16th of March. Happy birthday, dad.

Today is my dad's birthday. I'm returning to Tokyo tomorrow.

Most dads want their children to have financial stability, my dad merely wants me to be happy. So I took the filmmaking path for the sake of fulfilling a childhood dream.

It had been fun going to some film festivals with dad.
