Lost In Shinjuku

Everyday I put myself into Tokyo daily life as usual. I don't feel anything wrong with my life but sometimes I want to run away from here. I just record my life and this record will be current Japanese memory or might be void of future Tokyo.. Shinjuku, a city where more than 3.4 million people pass by everyday. The number of passengers getting on board as 1.3 billion a year is the best in the world. I am one of them. To me, Shinjuku is a place to switch between personal and work feeling every night every morning. I shoot this city every day as part of my life. This project focuses on the emptiness that Tokyo's life brings, or what is born when the fluctuation of my feelings mixes with the smell of the city life. And was shot this as a human record living in present Tokyo.

Born in 1973 Tokyo, Japan. Photograph the cityscape and the street life combined with social nature to find common ground between the street and the documentary photography in Tokyo.
