Works mainly in advertising and magazines on the theme of people, landscapes, and animals living in nature.

This time, he actually experienced the night time menu in Wakayama City.

While learning about the rare archaeological sites and cultural assets unearthed in Wakayama, as well as about life in Japan since ancient times, we were able to enjoy playing games such as beanbags and pawns. Stopping by a museum during your travels is more important than you might think, and you can find the origins and meanings of cultures in the topography and scenery of the land.
