Whenever we met at the studio, he would always smile at me, shake hands with me, and hug me, and it is immeasurable how much I had been encouraged. What we had done together is a treasure in which there is no substitute.
Mr. Chikao Otsuka, a stylish gentleman who liked tap dance, and whom I would look up to. If possible, I wanted to sing our favorite jazz together.
With gratitude. R.I.P
