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.

The Yosuien Garden in Wakayama Prefecture is a 33,000 square meter garden for feudal lords built by Tokugawa Harutomi. There is a pond in the garden where seawater from the sea was taken in, so you can see eels and gobies. The garden is made up of more than 1,000 pine trees a true axample of a Japanese style like,  and the reflection on the surface of the water is very beautiful.
