It’s fortunate to have friends in amazing places, like Japan! In May 2017 I travelled to see my friend Sarah in Chigasaki, about an hour south east from Tokyo. I spent a week exploring Japanese culture and photographing life in Chigasaki, making new friends and stretching my legs. In search of nature, I darted on the train to hike Mt. Tanzawa, staying overnight in an amazing and authentic guest house. My visit was also the perfect opportunity to meet editor of Skate Slate Magazine Japan, Dan Pepe, in Yokohama.
