Born in Tokyo, 1950. He yearned to travel after finishing high school. He borrowed his fathers’ camera and traveled to many places from the Amami Islands, Yoron Island, Okinoerabu Island, Yaeyama Islands, Ishigaki Island, Taketomi Island, Oki Islands and so on. Doing so, he noticed that life is "traveling" itself. At the age of 19, he went to a photo exhibition of Kishin Shinoyama (in Ginza, Tokyo) and it had a profound effect on him. He entered the Tokyo College of Photography, with dreams of being a photographer being involved in advertising publicity. After graduating, he worked at a number of companies developing his skill and then joined Kaburagi Studio. After working as chief photographer at Kaburagi Studio and as manager of the photo division of Ark Studio, he went independent. He is still on a journey now.
