Tanaka is attracted to a cultural heritage that is rapidly
disappearing. As Japan becomes urbanized, adopting modern
Western culture and architecture, old-fashioned structures
like this thatched farmhouse are becoming rare sights.
Tanaka travels throughout the countryside of western Japan,
capturing a timeless serenity in idyllic landscape views.
