Time’s Confession (published in Japanese in 2010) is a dream diary containing ten dreams indicating that the adage “Time is Money” is a source of a modern “disease.” Although we use this phrase daily, we rarely stop to think about its actual meaning. Even though time itself is undeniably a big part of our lives, we neither know nor think much about it.

The dreams indicate that, not so long ago, time used to be sacred. Yet, once the idea of “time is money” took hold, time was damaged beyond repair. Money has polluted and disfigured the flow of time. Consequently, our communication, relationships, humanity, minds, and lives have become ruined. This is one of the most serious diseases of our times, deteriorating not only individuals, but also society as a whole. To make matters worse, we rarely notice that the disease has spread in pandemic proportions.
