Manami Okazaki’s latest book ( with many of my pictures) is on sale now. The “Land of the Rising Cat” 😻 highlights Japan’s feline-themed shrines, temples and tourist destinations. It shows Japan’s ongoing love affair with cats and makes great addition to any cat-lover’s coffee table.
This is the third book I was asked to contribute my pictures to, previous two books were: “Kimono Now” and “Creative Sole”.
I greatly enjoyed visiting Tokoname, Seto and Takaoka to photograph pottery cats, Maneki Neko displays, amazing Japanese artisans and Doraemon’s hometown.
