Where is your favorite place to take photographs?

The comfortable space where sunlight, nature, sky are seen is the place that I like most.
I cannot meet them all the time.
They change in all timings by a season, weather, time.


what do you like about summer?

I live in Kyoto where it is very hot and humid.
I am not good at summer though I often go to the pool and the sea.


+what’s your idea of the perfect homemade summer meal?

In the summer, I mostly eat cold noodles and cold udon.
The most favorite of summer food is an ice cream.


what are three constants in your day?

  • Playing with kids
  • A conversation with the family
  • Be involved in the photo.


what is inspiring your work lately?

I am only purely recording family’s daily life.
I like sunlight and nature.
They are indispensable for my feelings and work.
