About the Author:

Hiroyuki Ozawa attended and graduated from the Tokyo Photography Academy in 1972 while a full-time employee at the Japanese National Railways. Just as he was wondering what to do with his life, one visit to the lively Sanja Festival convinced him that his calling was to capture Japanese festivals on film. His work over the past twenty-seven years has appeared in Japanese magazines, newspapers, and exhibits, and he has published four Japanese books devoted to festivals.
