His collage art pieces deal with his experiences of August 6, 1945 and the topic of forgiveness. Many of his pieces use the imagery of the crane. The extreme brightness of the bomb was the cause of Takashi's progressive loss of sight in later life. He maneuvers around Berkeley with the aid of his seeing-eye guide-dog, golden retriever, Yuki.
