This is a second exhibition of photographer Masaya Ohara, who is active in New Zealand.

'Shashin of New Zealand,
        to you and someone who love each other'

I appended a romantic poem (in Japanese and English) to the beautiful scenery photos of New Zealand. I hope you will feel happy with them.

Please come in when you go for a walk around Sannomiya, Kobe.
I look forward to seeing you there soon!

(Shashin means 'Photography' in Japanese)

(*) It is the same concept as the exhibition in Yokohama, but I will replace some photos.
