About me

Gender Male
Occupation A hobbyist shutterbug
Location Kamakura City, Kanagawa, Japan
Introduction The area called "Kita-kamakura" or Northern Kamakura was a cradle of Zen Buddhism in Japan and is characterized by the presence of the historic and prominent Zen temples of Rinzai School. The profoundness and spirituality of Zen can still be sensed vividly in the quiet scenes of these temples and their natural surroundings. When I go for a walk in the peaceful gardens of these temples, I always carry my camera to capture the unforgettable moments of wonder which I encounter only once in a lifetime.
