Prologue | Photography in Owase, Japan (2020)

An easy way to interact with nature is a trip. The journeys that people who suddenly have free time often bring beauty and satisfaction. I had a happy time. Even now, these photographs will immediately remind me of the fascinating mountains on a small street in Mie prefecture.

p.s. The afternoon I spent traveling was satisfied on November 14, 2020.

Epilogue | Photography in Nakatsugawa, Japan (2020)

The more I walked, the more I wanted to spend in nature. So, I started a short adventure – a trip to Tsukechi Gorge during the autumn leaves season. This expedition brought deep satisfaction. Traveling in mother nature gives you an experience that makes you want to talk to others.

Photography in Sakae, Japan (2020)

Photographs are a way to capture the stories of the past, present, and future.

For me, photography gives me specific things to cling to and remember.

In the picture, everyone will remember the moment and have a slightly different experience.

Epilogue | Photography at Mt. Horaiji, Japan (2020)

The current shape of Mt. Horaiji was formed through a combination of volcanic eruptions that occured about 14 million years ago and the process of erosion that followed. The geological features of the mountain can be characterized as lava that solidfied into rock and volcanic ash.

Its unique mystic landscape with its series of steep cliffs has been captivating people’s hearts since ancient times. Beautiful is not the perfect word. It’s beautiful, but it’s not good and neither not good. It was wonderful.

Prologue | Photography at Mt. Horaiji, Japan (2020)

Mt. Horaiji is 695m above sea level, while the actual height of the mountain from its base to the top is about 475m. Horaiji temple is situated at 450m. The stairs consist of 1,425 stone steps ascending from the foot of the mountain, and is considered to be one of the largest mountain staircase in Japan.

Horaiji temple was constructed in 703. During the Heian period (794 -1192), Mt. Horaiji begame a sacred location mainly for practitioners of Shingon and Tendai sects of Buddihism who wished to acquire Buddhist esoteric teachings by dwelling deep in the mountain.

In 1969, Mt. Horaiji was designated as one of the national parks in the Tenryu-Okuyama region for its rich diversity of flora and fauna – long protected by the Buddhist principle of non-killing, which is carved on the stone tablet placed at the entrance of the mountain.

p.s. I succdeed in climbing Mt. Horaiji (▲684m) on on October 24, 2020.

What is Veganism?

Veganism is the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals. An individual who follows the diet or philosophy is known as a vegan.

Environmental Issues and Opinions

In recent years, the livestock industry has problems with climate change as abnormal weather on a global scale. In other words, reducing livestock meat consumption can effectively reduce global greenhouse gases. From an environmental point of view, I take veganism that does not eat animal-derived foods. Animal-derived foods affect global warming and lead to deforestation.

The population has doubled in the last half-century, and it has become one of the causes of accelerating global warming, including dietary habits derived from animals and food loss. The food industry should develop delicious plant-derived products (alternatives) that surpass meat, meet people’s needs, and the industry should meet. For example, there is something like soy meat (a food derived from soybeans). Beyond meats and vegan foods are everywhere in the western countries.

Another problem is the belching caused by the ruminant cow. It emits methane, which has more than 20 times more greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide. That amount accounts for 37% of the methane emitted in daily life activities around the world, and on farms such as cattle and pigs, the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide is from livestock excrement.

In conclusion, we have to return to the original Earth. And it is to coexist with nature and animals. We need to keep in mind that economic development and our lives up to now have caused dangers to the global environment, including global warming. It is of utmost importance for each of us to act locally on environmental issues from a global perspective.

Black & white diary : Shooting 10/25/2020

I imagine that life is creating by small changes.

Every time I act on my pure interest, every little change empowers me.

Each small change will eventually lead to a larger path of change in life.

I bought a new tent. Such delicate but meaningful changes bring a sense of freedom.

Epilog | Photography in Mie, Japan (2020)

With a good feeling, I was walking along the mountain path toward the summit at an altitude of 1,212m. On thorny roads, I sometimes went down the rock gap in a mountain ridge and through depressions.

The mountain road had a steep slope, but the air was good with the scent of forests here and there. I looked beyond the horizon, which was hazy in the fog far away.

I enjoyed this trail in my way, but when I had to take a break, I took a break. At Mt. Gozaisho, anyone who meets on the road is supposed to give a bow. It’s beautiful.
