Throughout the 70s and 80s, there was a photographer whose work made Biei known to the world. Without him, this town may never have come to be known as a beautiful tourist spot.
His name was Shinzo Maeda.
This year, Shinzo Maeda would have turned 100. To celebrate this special date, a special commemorative photo exhibition will be held from June 3rd, his birthday, at bi.yell community centre and the Takushinkan Gallery.
If you are in Biei during the exhibition, we hope that you will drop by.
