The wintertag (winter day) series is one of the winter landscapes in Japan. These are photos at the foot of Mount Fuji and my hometown (central Kanagawa prefecture / An area along the Sagami River). The Lake Yamanaka at the foot of Mount Fuji is approximately 70km distance from my hometown. In my hometown, it snows rarely however, the Lake Yamanaka freezes every year. In Nov.2016, it snowed for the first time in 54 years in my hometown. The Lake Yamanaka is the headstream of the Sagami River and it is the only lake with natural debouch into the rivers among the Five Lakes of Mount Fuji.

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.
