Artist's Description


I currently have bulks of postcards on hand of this image among various others that I can sell cheaper to customers within the Greater Toronto Area. Learn more here


Longing to be back to the land by the sea,
Where the air smelled nostalgically sweet in the cool summer breeze.
I felt lucky to go abroad, working close to the shore
While some of the staff had never left their country before.
(excerpt from my poem Memoirs of an Intern )

Taken May 20, 2007 with a Fuji E-510

This image is the cover for my Miura Coast calendar.

This rock in, known as Shiroyama (literally means “white mountain”), is located Arasaki Park (Yokosuka, Japan). Yokosuka is a city in Miura near Hayama, the town where I did my internship. Hayama is renowned for the beach and green hills, and this place was just a drive down.

Hayama literally means “leaf mountain” in Japanese, and indeed Hayama is full of green mountains. The coast of Yokosuka, as well as Hayama; along with other cities in Miura are popular for their beaches and offer a rich experience with nature. Areas like these are very different from Tokyo (which is a lot of people’s idea of Japan).

I loved it here; in this park, nature itself is a work of art. And by the sea, the air smelled nostalgically sweet…
