I've been fascinated with celestial stars in my childhood, and started in astro-photographing when I was at university.
Now, I continue to record the expressions of heavens by going on an expedition (of course by a car) to escape from the terrible Light-Pollution around Tokyo area.

Japan is an Asian country in the Northern temperate latitudes, I have strong yearning toward the constellations and celestial objects in the Southern hemisphere that I've never seen...
