The Jojakko-Ji Temple is located at Saga Ogurayama Ukyo-ku, Kyoto. We go to across the Togetsukyo Bridge from Hankyu Arashiyama Station. It is always crowded because it is a famous scenic spot in Kyoto Speaking of Arashiyama . Restoration work of heavy rain disaster of last year were still being around the Arashiyama park .
It was not a foliage season , but it was difficult to walk because of full of people. However , it was silent, after I walked through the bamboo forest and across the railroad crossing of JR San-in line. I was aiming for straight Jojakuko-Ji Temple.
I found that It was written as a " weeping cherry tree in full bloom " , after I payed the admission fee at the entrance. I was lucky. There was no one.
There are possibility many mixed objects in a work, if I shoot with the ultra- wide angle. And I completed the shoot as soon as I could, because " I do not want to trouble for other tourists." It was beautiful that the pink weeping cherry blossoms with blue sky.
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.
