Author: Chiemi Souen | Illustrator: Flor Kaneshiro | Paperback
Every day, Choichi Terukina practices singing and playing the three-stringed sanshin with his teacher, Miyazato-Sensei. Choichi wants to become a great musician and share the art of uta-sanshin with the world beyond his island home. But is that truly his ikigai-his life's purpose?
Inspired by the life of Living National Treasure of Japan, Choichi Terukina, IKIGAI: Life's Purpose is a beautiful tale of determination for anyone searching for their place in the world.
