borderland

America in Kanagawa | There are dotted with US military facilities in Kanagawa where I live. Of these Kamiseya Transmitting Facility in the suburbs of Yokohama was drawn off and the land was returned in 2015. The site area was 24.2k㎡. Cherry blossoms were planted along the surrounding highways as a sign of friendship. It is planed to attract an International Horticultural Exhibition which will be held in 2026, on the site of this US military facility. The purposes of this photo series are to record as one of the history of Japan or the history of Kanagawa which should be created the reborn landscape in the near future. *an ongoing series.

Wintertag

The wintertag (winter day) series is one of the winter landscapes in Japan. These are at my hometown and the foot of Mt.Fuji. It snows rarely in my hometown however, the Lake Yamanaka at the foot of Mt.Fuji freezes every year. The Lake Yamanaka is drained by the Sagami River (photo #14 : River in Kanagawa Prefecture) and is the only of the Fuji Five Lakes to have a natural outflow.

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
