【After PMF 2022】What are some impressions of your time in Sapporo?
Sapporo is a very beautiful, exciting, and tranquil city. There is so much to see — beautiful mountains, restaurants, and parks. Nakajima park is a lovely environment to make music in and walk around every day. I miss the crisp air, greenery, and the beloved Kitara Hall. The people are extremely respectful and the food is absolutely unbeatable. There is also so much enthusiasm for classical music and PMF.

It was heartwarming and exciting for me to be surrounded by so many people from different backgrounds who shared my love for music.
