I was born and raised in Niigata
then I spent 22 years in Tokyo from the age of 18.

Living in Niigata,
I sometimes compare my hometown to Tokyo.

I traveled about 500km to take pictures of steel towers
with high voltage cables from Niigata to Tokyo.

I wanted to reconsider the relationship between Niigata and Tokyo.

I turned my thoughts toward a far future,
gazing at spectacular lights of the metropolis
to which is leaded high voltage cables.
