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. These landscapes are simplified by snow and I also tend to express simply and minimally.

Second Home | in Setouchi
My father comes from Takamatsu (Shikoku Island). I went to Takamatsu and Shodoshima (Island of Seto inland sea) for the first time in 30 years. In childhood, I always spent the summer in Takamatsu with my cousin. This personal series is re-recording of the memories of my childhood.
