Takushinkan Photo Gallery
In the heart of Hokkaido, the hilly landscapes of Biei create unforgettably beautiful scenery. Shinzo Maeda’s striking photographs of Biei have made the small agricultural town to widely popular throughout the nation. Maeda dedicated his life to capturing the beauty of Biei and surrounding areas such as Furano. The Takushinkan Photo Gallery, built by renovating an abandoned elementary school, displays Maeda's life works. The hills seem to take on a life of their own through Maeda's lens. Best of all, the photo gallery offers a chance to view the vibrant beauty of all four seasons of Biei at once.
