Well-known ventriloquist Ikkokudo, whose real name is Ikkoku Tamaki, recently visited his old school, Chatan High School, in Chatan Town. In his speech to the students he advised that, “It is important for you to take small steps towards your goals in life.” The students were all impressed with his demonstration of his ventriloquist skills. He told them how he used to imitate the teachers at the school’s morning gathering to develop confidence towards achieving his dream of becoming a performer in future. He fondly recalled his days at high school.

First-year student Momona Tamaki said, “I don’t really have a clear idea of my dream for the future, but I want to do my best to achieve what I have in front of me now. ”
