I’m joining a photo exhibition organised by the Nikon Photomentary team together with 3 other professional photographers. The exhibition is held at EIZO Galleria in Ginza, Tokyo and is opening the day after tomorrow (Nov. 11) and will close on Nov. 21. Beware that they’re closed on Sundays and Mondays.
In addition to 2 prints, I’m displaying 30 photos on an EIZO’s state-of-the-art 4K monitor ColorEdge CG316-4K. I was utterly blown away by the quality of images that the monitor can present. Good monitors are expensive but it is necessary to invest on them if you’re serious about photography. That said, my ColorEdge is smaller and more affordable. =)

It was a busy day. I took this shot in the early morning in Oshino.
I slept for a couple of hours and left Fujiyoshida to Tokyo. First, I visited Shinjuku. The area close to the west entrance of Shinjuku (A.K.A. Shinjuku Nishiguchi) is the best place to buy camera gear in Tokyo. Then, I went to Nikon’s Service Centre in Ginza to have them clean the sensors of my Nikon cameras. There are many camera-related shops and galleries in Shinjuku and Ginza areas. Great places for photo enthusiasts.
Literary Giant Soseki Natsume wrote, “There’s only one thing we can be proud of in Japan. That’s Mt. Fuji.” Back then, Japan had just emerged from feudal isolation and was locked in the midst of a rapid modernization. Having recently returned from the UK, Soseki felt Japan was significantly behind western nations and unable to create anything worth taking pride in. Although we now have technological and cultural advancements that we can take pride ourselves in, facing Mt. Fuji with a solemn heart still reveals the thing lost during modernization. (Yuga Kurita)
