Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto has contributed a charming illustration of a family's porch gathering for the cover of the fourth issue of forward looking magazine Future Times.

In the issue, the magazine speaks with singer/guitarist Toshimi Watanabe, director Sion Sono and writer/anti-nuclear activist Seiko Ito.
