About the Work

Takashi lost his eyesight in grade school. Though he can recreate the world in his mind, he is losing interest with fewer things to enjoy. One day, Shinji invites him to a steam locomotive ceremony. When he is asked by a neighbor if they are friends, he replies “Shinji and I aren't really friends". Hearing it, Shinji runs off. Takashi looks for him, falling into darker state of mind. With people’s support, they regain friendship at the ceremony. With the train passing by, Shinji's voice renders him the world one after another. Takashi learns the world could be changed on his feelings.
