春は色んな人達が分岐点に立つ季節として大好きです。様々な場所で大なリ小なリドラマが生まれる時期だと感じているからです。今回のイラストは、1人の女の子がちっちゃい体のありったけの勇気を出して旅立つ様を描きました。背景は熊本人吉の大畑駅をモチーフにしました。実母が就職当時、宮崎から熊本へ半日蒸気機関車で揺られながら移動した際に立ち寄った駅で、桜の木が印象深かったと話していました。


I love spring, as it is the season that stands at a turning point in the lives of various people. I feel it is a time when dramas, large and small, occur in all kinds of places. In this year’s illustration I have portrayed a girl who has summoned up all the courage she possesses in her tiny body to set off on a trip. For the background I have used ‘Okoba’ station in Hitoyoshi City, Kumamoto Prefecture. When my mother left home to get a job, she traveled by steam train for half a day from Miyazaki to Kumamoto and this was the station where she paused for a rest. She says that the cherry blossom there made a strong impression on her.
