【Meaning of "Shirasu Yamato"】
Shirasu” is a word that appears in the old Japanese text Kojiki, whereas “yamato” is a word used since ancient times representing the land of Japan. While there is no accurate meaning that can describe the word “shirasu” in the present time, I understand that its meaning is about the sensorial connection that is obtained through an enormous intention.

【「しらすやまと」の意味 】
「しらす」とは古事記という日本の古い書物に登場する言葉で、「やまと」は古代から使われている日本の国を表す言葉 です。「しらす」の正確な意味は現代まで残っていませんが、大きな意図に共感して感覚的な繋がりが生まれる、そのような意味だと私は理解しています。(栗山 喬)
