Photo Exhibition: Hidden Japan

The Embassy of Japan in association with Japanese Universities Alumni Association, Nepal (JUAAN) and Japanese Language Teachers' Association, Nepal (JALTAN) has organized a photo exhibition: 'Hidden Japan' from March 7 to March 19, 2008 at the Embassy Hall. Ambassador Mr. Tatsuo Mizuno, Mr. Prachanda Man Shrestha, Chief Executive Officer of Nepal Tourism Board, Mr. Bal Bahadur Parajuli, President of JUAAN and Mr. Nurbu Lama, President of JALTAN jointly inaugurated the exhibition on March 5, 2008. The exhibition is supported by the Japan Foundation.

The photographs on display are from Mr. KijuroYahagi's collection. These photographs are outcome of his picture-taking journey throughout Japan extending over some 20,000 kilometers, exploring the very deepest layers of Japan. Some photos present animistic scenes involving natural features and objectives as mountains, rocks, stones and trees. The others present scenes such as rock gardens, fields surrounded by mountains, fisherman's house surrounding a small harbor, a large city full of hurrying pedestrians, traffic jam, etc. Each picture exhibited brings to the surface glimpses of various aspects of Japan. In other words, his collections reflect Japan as it. Mr. Yahagi who has won numerous prestigious awards both in Japan and abroad is an internationally recognized photographer.
