“Although Takahiko was an active part of  the New York avant-garde scene, he 
always remained an enigmatic, mysterious presence, pursuing his own unique 
route through the very center of the avant-garde cinema. While the intensity 
and the fire of the American avant-garde film movement inspired him and 
attracted him, his Japanese origins contributed decisively to his 
uncompromising explorations of cinema’s minimalist and conceptualist 
possibilities. He has explored this direction of cinema in greater depth than 
anyone else.” – Jonas Mekas, Director, Anthology  Film Archives, New York
