Takushinkan Photo Gallery
In the heart of Hokkaido lie hillsides of unforgettable beauty. Striking photographs of the hillscapes of Biei have made the small agricultural town a household name throughout the nation. Shinzo Maeda dedicated his life to capturing the beauty of Biei and surrounding areas such as Furano. The Takushinkan Photo Gallery, repurposed from a closed elementary school, displays Maeda's life works. The hills seem to take on a life of their own through Maeda's lens. Perhaps best of all, the photo gallery offers a chance to experience the vibrant beauty of all four seasons at once.
