I’ve been interested in rivers as the source of all development. This book features Kamo-gawa, an iconic river in Kyoto where I currently live. The city has twelve hundred years of history and has been known for its refined culture since ancient times. There are some stepping stones across the river, and they are liked by men and women of all ages. While I was taking photos of local people leaping from one stones to another, I found some potsherds on the river bank. The striking fragments of man-made objects seemed to be a symbolic representation of the history and the memories of the city. When this book spreads into a circle, the people look as if they go round and round and spin a connecting thread to the future.
