"I think that the Shintoism has been very interesting to me, the Shinto religion, I think it’s one of the most mysterious rituals I have ever experienced. The Noh theatre was very important to me. The writings of great poets like Issa or the paintings of great priests or such things as I mentioned: "like a dream, like a vision, like a bubble, like a shadow, like dew, like lightning.""
