I was born in Oita prefecture, Kyushu, and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, Shikoku. My sister gave me my first camera and I have been taking pictures since then. Photographs have the power to tell stories, remind us of precious experiences, and motivate people to act. That’s why I love photography. Now, I’m living in Tokushima prefecture and would like to introduce the wonderful culture of Tokushima through all of my photographs.
