When Sakurako presented her newest work, "Metro", she said: "I have always been fascinated by drawing food and its packages in my paintings. Trying to add a new concept into them, I have got an idea of resembling this painting a metro map, or something similar to let people picture one. The theme of this painting is 'Tokyo, the city of materials and logistics'. I hope viewers enjoy looking into this painting by comparing it with the original metro map."
