The Takohachi restaurant serves local Nagoya food ‘miso-kushikatsu dinner' (fried pork on skewers with miso souce). Takohachi has been functioning 60 years as a restaurant. Most of its customers are born and raised in this neighbourhood, so you'll see a child, his parents and his grand parents enjoy a meal together. Takohachi is located in front of the Nittai temple where Shaka’s bone is enshrined. Beware, Friday and Saturday nights are closed. 2 mins on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.

Heiwa Park is s a cemetery of 150 hectare with a large pond and lawn field, its near my residence. Heiwa means peace. I like taking a walk with my camera watching people worshipping, fishing and playing easy baseball. In spring, so many people enjoy sakura blossom with a bento (lunch box) and booze. I think ‘people’ in the cemetery is also looking forward to be with us every year. 20 mins of foot from Higashiyamakoen or Hoshigaoka metro stations.

A 'Closed' sign is always hung in front but, don’t worry, it’s open. 5 mins on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.

The bar of bars. I often drop by for a last drink. Dark light, thick counter, nice music and Irish whisky makes me so relaxed. There is another small room at the back and parties are held here irregulary. I spin vinyls, cutting and scratching for these parties. People are sitting back and relaxed, sometime dancing to their favorite old school tracks. 1 min on foot from Kakuouzan metro station.

Hi I'm a stills and motion photographer living in Berlin Germany, but have worked for numerous clients, magazines and agencies on projects all around the world.  “Lars’ cinematic photographs follow a timeless aesthetic driven by his search for authenticity. With great practice and understanding of natural light he is looking for that magic moment that is able to touch our minds and hearts. This way Lars creates a broad spectrum of imagery depicting live in all different shades and colours. There is a naturalism in his visual reaction to people, situations or landscapes, which creates the certain strength and universal beauty of his evocative photography. Whether he is working on a large-scale commercial shoot, an intimate portrait session or a personal project, Lars is able to strip away the artificial, get close to the people and capture something real.”  (J.C.)
