NiSi 150mm Filter Holder System for Nikon 14-24
I got a new filter holder system for the Nikon 14-24mm from NiSi. I'm very impressed with this product. I find it is much better than the Lee Filters SW-150, which is a similar product I also own. For details, read the blog entry I posted on my website.

Breaking the Ice

Every time I see the sunrise, I appreciate the existence of the sun. I feel doubly blessed when the sun gives a hint of warmth to the air in a freezing morning. Probably we need the absence of precious things to appreciate their value.

Jan 11, 2014 / Lake Shoji, Fujigoko Area, Yamanashi Pref.

Iridescent Night
I climbed Mt. Shakushi, which is one of the highest vantage point in the neighborhood to shoot Fuji. A thin sea of clouds covered the town light of Oshino and created iridescent colour. It was really an awesome view.

峠 (Tōge)
Nikon D800E w/ SIGMA 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM

Leaves are already coloured in high places. I visited the Yanagisawa Touge (1472m/4829ft) at dusk after hiking the Daibosatsu Touge (1897m/6224ft). Until the Edo period (era of Tokugawa shogunate), people used the Daibosatsu Touge to go to Kofu from Tokyo (back then it was called Edo). But it was rather a dangerous route. Many people went missing at the Daibosatsu Touge and vehicles couldn't go through there. In the Meiji era, a new route was created to solve the problems and the highest point of the new route is the Yanagisawa Touge. The word 峠 (Touge, or also spelt as Toge or Tōge) means the highest point of a route that go through a mountain range. We often shoot Fuji from Touges.

Mt. Fuji Today
The moon was 13 days old last night. I drove to the south to moonlit Fujisan with town light. I stopped by at Shimizu Yoshiwara and shot Fujisan with the sunrise.

It's Time to Go Home Now

The sun went down and town lit up. I heard the melody of Dvorak's Symphony #2 (New World) 2nd Movement in my mind. It's time to go home now.

Jan 28, 2015 / Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi Pref.

I wrote a blog entry about shooting Mt. Fuji from the Akaishi Mountains (A.K.A. Southern Alps). I'm writing the second part of the article and posting it soon.

Perfect Serenity
Nikon D800E w/ SIGMA ART 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM

I climbed Mt. Akaishidake (3,120m/10,240ft), which is the seventh highest mountain in Japan and the main mountain in the Japan's South Alps. The summit was frozen and slippery. Lodges were already closed so I needed to carry my own sleeping bag and bivy. It wasn't easy mountaineering for me but the experience was priceless. On my way back home, I also met a Japanese serow, a very rare kind of goat-antelope.

Landscape photographer specialized in Mt. Fuji and starscapes.
Introduction
I've just moved from Tokyo to Fujiyoshida as I determined to be a landscape photographer specialized in Mt. Fuji. I also love shooting stars and am very passionate to capture Mt. Fuji together with the milky way. My main camera is a NIKON D800E and I also own a D600, D5100 and OLYMPUS OM-D E-M5.
