Currently living and working in his hometown, Shimagahara village in Mie.

Iwana says that he wandered in the fields and mountains of his village under the restrictions on movement imposed during COVID-19 since last spring, and was absorbed in the contemplation of oblivion and death in the ruins of abandoned houses and gravestones.
