A jacket that belonged to Akira Teranishi is seen with his photo in Kyoto. Akira was a restaurant manager and worked 12-14 hours a day for more than 10 years. His excessive overwork and stress brought depression on him eventually and he ended his life by jumping from a building on a snowy Valentine's Day. "Pain never goes away no matter how much time passes. After my husband's death, children grew up, got married, and grandchildren were born. More things to celebrate in my life, more sadness I feel, because I always wished my husband was here with me to share joy." says his wife Emiko..
