A walking event is held once a year on the cape of the Sotoura outer harbor. The artist presents a story about leaving and returning to Suzu on part of the walking course. In pictures installed at multiple points along the path, he portrays settlers of the past who traveled from Suzu to Manchuria. Yumisashi plans to visit the bereaved families of the Manchurian settler communities to hear their stories and create work that questions what it means to move to a new place.

Continue to create with the themes of "suicide" and "consolation". After graduating from Nagoya University of Arts and Sciences, he started a video production company in Nagoya with his student friends. After resigning as a representative, he moved to Tokyo, and in 2015, when he was studying as the first student of Genron Chaos * Lounge New Art School, his mother, who had lost his physical and mental balance after a traffic accident, died on his own. A "bird motif with a ring" emerged before the casket, and it is the core of his expression that appears repeatedly in many subsequent works. From 2021, a project to think about past wars centered on "Manchuria" was started.
