New Song: “Seek First”

When I think about this song project, it’s a feeling of excitement! This song shares a little of what Jesus taught about the Heavenly Father’s provision and about not worrying over food, clothing, and drink. Here is a translation of the lyrics of the song:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? […] For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:25,32-34 from the NIV Bible translation)

Thank you for listening!


「それだから、あなたがたに言っておく。何を食べようか、何を飲もうかと、自分の命のことで思いわずらい、何を着ようかと自分のからだのことで思いわずらうな。命は食物にまさり、からだは着物にまさるではないか。・・・これらのものはみな、異邦人が切に求めているものである。あなたがたの天の父は、これらのものが、ことごとくあなたがたに必要であることをご存じである。 まず神の国と神の義とを求めなさい。そうすれば、これらのものは、すべて添えて与えられるであろう。だから、あすのことを思いわずらうな。あすのことは、あす自身が思いわずらうであろう。一日の苦労は、その日一日だけで十分である。」(マタイ6章25、32〜34節 口語訳の聖書訳より)

New Song: “Narrow”

This is a new song called “Narrow” that is based on Matthew 7:13-14 from the Bible. It’s a passage that explains how, in life, the gate that leads to destruction is big, its road is wide, and many people fall into it. But there is also a gate that leads to life, but it is narrow and its road is thin/hard, and there are few people that find it (from Kougoyaku and ESV Bible translations). Jesus says: “Enter by the narrow gate …” (Matthew 7:13 ESV) and has also said, “I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved.” (John 10:9a NIV) … I believe Jesus. Thank you for listening!

この新作曲は新訳聖書のマタイ7章13~14節からきて、「Narrow」という曲です。人生には「滅びにいたる門は大きく、その道は広い。そして、そこからはいって行く者が多い。」ということを説明する聖書の箇所です。しかし、「命にいたる門」もあるけど、その門は「狭く、その道は細い。(または辛い)そして、それを見いだす者が少ない。」(口語訳とESVという聖書訳)イエス・キリスト様は「狭い門からはいれ・・・」と言われました。(マタイ7章13節、口語訳)また、別の箇所で、イエス様は「わたしは門である。わたしをとおってはいる者は救われ」と言われました。(ヨハネ10章9a節、口語訳)・・・ イエスさまを信じています、僕は。聴いてくれてありがとうございます!

The Hard Times (draft)

Musically-speaking, I think this 2022 was a super busy year, but I would like to share one more original song called “The Hard Times” with this post. This is a song that laments my own failings and ponders the hard times of life. Even still, the song is meant to end in a hopeful way, pointing to how I can run to Jesus in the hard times and how He knows what’s going on in life. Thank you for listening and for your kindness over this past year! May God also bless you in 2023!

音楽的に言えば、この2022年は超忙しい一年だったと思いますが、この投稿でもう一つの作曲「The Hard Times」という曲を発表したいと思います。この曲は自分自身の失敗を惜しんだり、人生の辛い時を反省したりするという曲です。それでも、イエス様のもとへ駆け出したり、彼は人生にて何が起こっているかということをご存知であったりすることを伝えようとしていて、希望を持つという曲ですね。この曲を聴いてくれて、またこの一年間を通して、ご親切さを示してくれてありがとうございます!神様の祝福が2023年にも皆さんの上に溢れますように!

“Kanyou (Patience)” from Fall Festival 2022

As usual, here is another song recording from the past Fall Festival 2022 event. It’s called “Kanyou (Patience)”, and reflects on: God’s patience, the fruit of the Spirit, wanting to be more patient, and praises the Lord for His patience. I really like how the song turned out from the 3:37 minute mark to the end (though with mistakes)! Thankful to God about that. Thank you for listening!

相変わらず、これは2022年の秋祭りからの歌の録音です。「寛容 (Patience)」という曲で、神様の寛容のこと・御霊の実のこと、僕は寛容でありたいということを顧みたり、主を褒め称えたりするという曲です。僕はこの録音の3:37のところから録音の最後までという部分が特に好きですが(間違ったところもあったのに)!最後まで支えてくれた神様に感謝しています。この曲を聴いてくれてありがとうございます!

English Lyrics:

“Ai (Love)” from Fall Festival 2022

Recently, I’ve slowly been getting some song recordings from the recent Fall Festival 2022 event put together and am trying to upload them. Thanks to my way of recording at the Fall Festival, I think the recording quality is not that great, but I think it’s at least useful for a memory of the event! The first song is called “Ai (Love)”. Thank you for listening even a little bit, if you have time!

Looking for Live Music Opportunities

Hi Everyone,

Lately, I’ve been starting to look around for live music opportunities around Oregon (and might be open to Washington, as well)! Like my friend Andrew Nagatori termed it (who I recommend for live sound and audio in general), I generally like to do live music for no charge.

I have a portable, humble sound system ready to go and many original songs. The musical genre of what I play varies a bit, but the live music usually involves vocals, acoustic guitar, and automated drums.

I generally like to use acoustic guitar for live events, but I also like to play piano if one is available! I have many guitar and piano-based songs.

Please feel free to get in touch with me via my Contact page:

Thank you for your time!
