"Although born and raised in central Japan, I always had the desire to experience the North. After graduating from university, I worked for a Japanese polar adventurer. His lifestyle and the lifestyle of the Northerners from around the world inspired me to travel North. As I travelled through Yukon, Alaska, and Hokkaido, Japan for the past seven years, I recorded the journey using my cameras for my artistic photographic expression of Northern Nature. The scenary was incredible, the wildlife I encountered, extraordinary. I have chosen mostly photos of wildlife to reflect what still exist in the North.
Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada is now my home. It's a good home base for many more northern adventures and photographic journeys. I hope you will enjoy this "Northern Life" exhibition."
