According to the temple legend, Enchin, who is the same founder of Kiyomizu-dera Temple, had established this temple in 806. Kukai Kobo Daishi had been found the spring which treated the eyes of the monkey in 811 year, and that had been become the miraculous water by him, that is a legend. Many people come to this temple who want to treat the eye disease. Recently, has been used as a location such as historical drama and the movie. There is the harmonized beautiful atmosphere, because that has not only this precinct, but also including the mountains around this temple. I was become an official photographer of this temple. Please expect a beautiful seasonal landscape.
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.
