Abandon my own belief and pick up what just came to my mind

Sachiko Kobayashi's motto



One thing led to another, the singer was deprived of any chance to appear in the song industry, but taking these words to heart, she made a steady comeback. "I want to get rid of the fence that because I'm a traditional ballad singer or I'm  too old, and adopt new things," she says. Your limits are usually ones you just think. It impacts your life whether or not to be amused by chances dropping in your lap unexpectedly and ideas popping into your mind. From the evening publication of the Asahi Shimbun June 27.
