I love noise music. I've listened this true avant-garde music for a long time. and now, I'm taking the noise artist's photograph here in Tokyo. Because I would like to give people the thing received from them. If you get interested in these photos, I want you to listen to their music by all means. Their experimental music will set your soul free certainly.

Under The Cherry Tree...



Nobuyoshi Araki and My Wife

I bumped into Nobuyoshi Araki at the neighborhood. He was taking the photography of the cherry tree. That's a nice memory.

蘇民祭/Hardcore Photography in Tohoku













I have been to Mizusawa in Iwate, in order to see a very old and unique festival "Somin-Sai(蘇民祭)". It was a mind-blowing experience. Naked men run riot in the cold(-10℃!) from 10PM to 6AM. The festival was incredibly intense and people got extremely high. I was absorbed in my shooting. After the festival finished, I have noticed that one nail has separated from my finger.
