I went to shooting of "Rapeseed Memorial Service Festival" to Domyoji Tenman-gu Shrine located at the Osaka Prefecture Fujiidera City in 25 March 2014.
That is the location of the old history of many archaeological sites have been excavated, this place is also a family birthplace of Sugawara Michizane as "Tenjin-Sama" public everyone knows as the god of learning lived.
In the ancient times, there is in the same place because of syncretistic fusion of Shintoism and Buddhism, but after it was the Ordinance Distinguishing Shinto and Buddhism at Meiji era that was separated into Shinto Shrine and Buddhism Temple.
Domyoji is where an aunt of Mr. Sugawara Michizane had lived. And this place is famous for story of "Parting of Domyoji". This festival is based on a story that His aunt made the yellow dumpling for everyday for pray for him, they say that "Spring Festival of Kawachi(East part of Osaka-Pref)".
I am interested in documenting and introducing the world to traditional Japanese culture. My main motif are the Japanese traditional festival and the environment. The characteristic of my works are simplification of the subject, exaggerated perspective, the color control with a feature, and that is to use as reference the characteristics of Ukiyo-e and I have named to "Digital Ukiyo-e(Registered trademark)". I began photographing at the age of 13 and belongs to The Photographic Society of Japan.
