**To all those affected by the earthquake and tsunami. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We wish for the safety of you all.**
Japan is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This is my Japan. This is one of the many reasons why I love Japan. I shot this in many locations around Japan in the summer of 2009. Some of the location include Tokyo, Matsuyama, Imabari, Nagano, Gifu, and Ishizushisan.
I started this as a personal project to try and capture the beauty that I see in Japan. It started as just that...
But now that I have finished, I see it only as a beginning. This video, along with SAIJO MATSURI (vimeo.com/7458088) is just the start of a much larger project that I have now decided to do.
Anyone interested in helping fund/produce this dream of mine please feel free to contact me:
So I hope you enjoy this preview of what is to come in the future.

Please visit his page vimeo.com/35675173 and 'Like' this video on his page instead of mine. He's the cinematographer and guts of it and should be getting more attention! :)
