Another side of Yokohama / Yokohama ordinary life (2008 - present) : I live in Kanagawa, Japan. Kanagawa prefecture has a city called Yokohama. Since Yokohama was one of our first port cities (in Japan), the landscape exudes history. Yokohama has incorporated a lot of different cultures from foreign countries. And Yokohama is now very different from what it was 10 years ago.
The wintertag (winter day) series is one of the winter landscapes in Japan. These are at my hometown and the foot of Mt.Fuji. These landscapes are simplified by snow and I also tend to express simplicity and minimal.

Under the overpass
This series is an ongoing project. This location is southwest of Kanagawa prefecture. The theme of this series is coastal erosion and life. *Japan national route 1 Seisho Bypass (Oiso, Ninomiya, Kouzu, Odawara and Hayakawa : 20km section).
A life alive
This personal series is an ongoing project, which started in 2010. These photos are at my parents’ house and surrounding countryside the Izu peninsula. Mountain-burning on the Mt.Omuro is one of the events of the Izu peninsula. I think it to be reincarnation (A never ending cycle of life). It is the last place that my parents live. | 終の住処
A foggy day / A snowy day. Similar but different. The nearby landscape and a fixed point. It rarely fogs/snows in this area.
My father comes from Takamatsu (Shikoku Island). I went to Takamatsu and Shodoshima for the first time in 30 years. In childhood, I always spent the summer in Takamatsu with my cousin. This series is re-recording of the memories of my childhood.
