Hitomi Akashi »VAGABOND«

After the great earthquake in North-Japan in the year 2011, my idea was to go to the north and take pictures. But I felt so bad and started to cry and tremble.
5 days later I took the train and went to Kyushu, in south-west Japan, 1000 km away from my home
When I came to Hakata , the bright lights of the train-station made my heart shine again.
A girl with the smile of an angel was there to welcome me.
I started to live in Kyushu and I stayed there for four years.
There should be no barriers in live between us and our love ones.

Shota Kokuryo »TOWN ANONYMOUS«

The big Urban Centers in Japan attracting more and more people. The majority of the population centered in an urban belt that runs through the area of Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya, all located relatively near each other, along the route of Japan’s bullet train. There they can find work and prosperity. But the rest of the country is loosing its energy and people. Only the youngest and oldest are staying at the countryside. In some rural regions, nature is taking the land back. Families are tearing down unused homes, turning the land back into fields. Most of the villages and small towns will disappear completely in the future. Wild animals like bears and wild boars will take the empty land. Shota Kokuryo is recording with his camera the vanishing places.
