I have been photographing landscapes of Japan and tropical forests in the world. From my experiences, the best time to take picture is the morning. In early morning, when the sky starts to turn white until the sun goes up, the light changes dramatically and creates different scenery by each moment. Surfaces of ground and plants are moist with the morning dew, making the scenery more attractive. The landscape in Oirase with mossy stones and rocks dotting in the mountain stream running along the primitive forest is the root of the "Wabi Sabi" expression. Moss and stones are especially beautiful when they are moist. In the fresh morning mist, I captured the scenery of Oirase-keiryu in fall.
