I am really excited that this work based on such an important subject for Japanese
people as "47RONIN" is going to become an epic Hollywood production, and that
it will also be presented in 3D. Being able to co-star with Keanu and other brilliant
actors, and all together to weave a worldwide production makes me feel a sense of
fulfillment. From now on I want to sharpen my sensibility, and to push forward
without changing my stance, in order to be active in both music and acting around
the world without borders.
