Pond at an altitude of about 500 meters in Niigata prefecture, Japan.
Even in the warm spring season when the cherry blossoms bloom, the snow that has fallen in the cold winter remains unmelted.

I have taken photography since 2009.
My main subjects are various landscapes in Japan.
The landscapes I photograph are mostly nature, and I mainly shoot nightscapes, early morning views, waterside views, views with Mount Fuji, and cherry blossom trees.
When the subject is a natural landscape, I repeatedly shoot the same location in spring, summer, fall, and winter, even for many years.
While I visit famous shooting spots, I like to find my own unique shooting spots that no one else knows about.
I want to continue to discover various landscapes of Japan in the future.
