The Shosei-en Garden is as garden enclave of Higashi Honganji Temple (Kyoto Shimogyoku), it is according to official document of that temple which have been donated to the Tokugawa Iemitsu Edo shogunate third shogun in 1641 (Kanei 18 years). It is located about 10 minutes’ walk from JR Kyoto Station and convenient transportation. I was fascinated by the splendor of this garden when my first visited. I think it's one of the most beautiful garden in Kyoto. Fortunately, it there were many flowers of late spring and early summer. Water lily had bloomed beautifully because recent days were early summer temperature. There were beautiful with the oblique sunshine from the east in the morning. This garden is planed while taking into scenic backdrop, but that cannot cover up to a height of Kyoto Tower, you have to cut the landscape to think about, if you shoot.
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.
