Welcome to my little boutique. The purpose of this site is not to try to sell as many products as possible. But I do make a few items available for sale and I hope you’ll check them out.

Fine Art Print

I’ve been told again and again that I should make prints available for others. I am working on it and I hope to start selling limited editions of some of my photographs soon. 

eBooks about Kyoto

I’ve written and co-authored a few eBooks about Kyoto and I am planning to write more as soon as I have the time. Go to the Book Store for more detail.

If you do buy a book, note that due to the nature of electronic eBook, and the low price asked for, I cannot offer any refund.

The Gion Matsuri Festival, A Visitor’s Manual

“In this book, I am providing explanation and description for a subjective selection of events, from a local foreigner’s point of view, someone with a camera. This book is meant to be practical first, with details of location and schedule of events alongside their description. At the same time, it is a photo book, chocked full of inspirational photographs taken over the last three years.”

Kôyô – The Fall Foliage in Kyoto

Kôyô, the Japanese term for the fall foliage season, is a beautiful and magical time in and around Kyoto. The season attracts as many tourists as the cherry-blossom season. Starting from the surrounding mountains and hills, every temple, every garden burst with a combination of yellow, orange and red colors.
