Born in 1965 in Tokyo. Living in Tokyo today. Started shooting in 2008.
My aim to shoot the street is to show how the world is beautiful, interesting, wonderful and sometimes cruel. By means of photography and through my own eyes with my gear.
I am so happy and glad when someone feels some emotion when they see my shots.

"Through my own eyes and my street shots I would like to express: the tension, the edged frustration, the taut atmosphere and the feelings that beat, inherent in the city."
Street photography in Japan, in and around the daily train ride — simply brilliant, like poetry or the heartbeat thrum of a big machine.
These intimate, up-close portraits of people in the streets of Tokyo speak for themselves. We love the direct gaze, the honesty and humanity of these photographs.
