Tower of the Sun
Taro Okamoto and Aimyon

Aimyon, why do you admire Taro Okamoto?
A 100-page special feature that focuses on Aimyon's perspective on the appeal of TARO!

Taro Okamoto is a great artist who expresses his outlook on art and human beings in various ways, from painting to sculpture, furniture, design, photography, calligraphy, and words.

Aimyon, a singer-songwriter who was born the year before TARO died and professes to dream of performing live under the Tower of the Sun.
I often go to places related to Taro Okamoto, read books and words, and even produce songs with TARO as a motif.

Even so, why do you admire Taro Okamoto so much? <br> Since the Osaka Expo, the interior has been revived vividly for more than 48 years. >, <Museum>, which holds a large number of works, and public art created based on the belief that "art belongs to the people", I would like to revisit Taro Okamoto's charm by tracing Aimyon!
