Chiyuki Sakagami lived in Kobe and was interested in the evolution of life on Earth. She found inspiration in plant and animal forms and the depths of the ocean. “I was born in the Precambrian Sea some 5 billion and 9 million years ago… The ancient fish taught me how to survive underwater, and so I went to live with them in the deep sea… Human beings have a weapon called ‘language’. But I dare not use it. I have learned a very good method for greeting. Hug the other person and kiss him. So I send you my kiss!“ This is the only autobiography she has agreed to make public.
