My solo photo exhibition started at Prime Minister’s Office in Vilnius city, Lithuania. I’m honored to exhibit 35 portrait pictures created in both Japan and Lithuania. I would like to thank Prime Minister’s Office to offer me this wonderful space for the exhibition, and to convey my sincere appreciation for everyone who kindly came to the opening ceremony. I’ll never forget this day. Moreover, I was really surprised to receive ‘Letter of appreciation’ for promoting the Japanese culture in Lithuania and for sharing the spirit of genuine photography art, from the Chancellor of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania. Thank you so much for everyone who greatly supported me to realize this wonderful exhibition!

I and my wife stayed at Shakespeare Hotel. It was cozy and relaxing atmosphere. I like owner’s idea each room is named as great writers such as Hemingway, Mark Twain, and Shakespeare. This way makes each room very original and personal.

I’m ready!

Cute ‘KOLO' albums have arrived from Japan! I ordered them in advance for my customers. I always select ‘KOLO’ album as a base for binding up a photo book. I like its simple design and sturdiness, and especially its window on front which welcomes my clients into the pictures’ world. I’m ready for being dedicated to customers for making albums!

I can grow my root, increase my leaves, and make trunk thick. I’m getting tall and tall. And, my growth result in overcoming the wall which I had thought it was too tall to cross over. Growing myself is the only way to overcome.

Silent relief in Trakai

After a big project in Lithuania was completed, at last I could rest after almost one-month working. I enjoyed a silent relief in Trakai Island Castle with my wife. We talked how hard it was for both of us during the preparation for a big project. During those days, we could not imagine that we can have a rest like this. So, I and my wife were so happy to experience a silent joy.
