I am honored to receive a prestigious Nishina Memorial Prize 2008.
It is obvious that the scientific achievements were made possible only with the superb power of the Subaru Telescope and its instruments which came to reality thanks to the dedicated efforts of many involved people, especially our Subaru Telescope colleagues.
In this regard, I understand the award is given as a symbolic one to praise the entire community of Subaru Telescope and the group of astronomers working on distant early galaxies. I owe them all about this and hope this helps to promote further prosperity of Subaru Telescope and open our ELT future.
