the single facial expression to be the expression of the human life.
In any of which, places no particular importance or the order of
It is according to his beliefs that every one should be conscious
and active in making every expression/decision.
Jinmo currently being known mostly as a musician. He
released more than 10 solo albums. He performs overseas actively
as well as domestic venues. Jinmo uniquely executes his guitar playing
by technique called "tapping"-as to "tap" the
fingerboard to make notes, instead of picking and strumming involved

making process at the same time.
actively involves with productions for dance, play, animation soundtracks.
His recent album is "AVANTRONIX"

Another facet of JINMO would be a writer. More than fifteen years
since 1988, he has written for the Japanese music magazine "Monthly
Guitar Magazine" ?Ritto Music Publ. In addition to that , he
also written for "Sound and Recording Magazine" "Player"

he calls "ultra fine bokushou " .
These works are done by only a couple of finest strands of hair;
each storokes are only microscopic size which takes thousands of
