The whole world is his stage and he established his identity by living around the world.

There are keywords, “Guilt”, “history” and”memory”.
After the applause by the guest, he started talking with a smile.
For example, about“The Age of Guilt and Forgiveness”, “ you should think ‘what is a guilt?’ after watching this movie and this is my wish. It was been seventy years after the end of WW2 and now, 80% of Japanese did not experience WW2. I want you to find a solution for this problem.” In addition to his speaking secret stories of“A Short Story on Forgetting and Remembering”, “Norwegian Woods” and “Seoul Fiction”, he spoke about a lot of things we are interested in, that it was very thoughtful of us when we have many questions. Finally he said, “WW2 is not your guilt, but it is your past” and, this great program is finished.
