Photography in Kawanehoncho Town, Japan (2021)

Japan is getting smaller and smaller. We have to go out in search of the unknown wilderness. That is what is unpredictable and beyond human control.

Today, experience has become stale, and the sense of adventure supported by spontaneity has become rare. Words themselves have lost the power of meaning to excite people that they once had.

When Japanese policy calls for “GoTo Travel,” we already know what to expect from it. Is it possible that fulfilling advertised expectations has become the meaning of the word “adventure” today?
