A corner of the historical entertainment area of Kyoto, as a Maiko, or apprentice Geisha entertainer makes her way to her teahouse. The history of this area goes back a thousand years, and the buildings are now all preserved in their traditional state.

He was a joint founder of Rengousekkeisha Ichigaya Architects in Tokyo, and in addition has held academic appointments and written widely, particularly on wooden building construction and aspects of townscape. He is active in the movement to preserve the traditional Japanese townscape, which features in his many "travel sketches," together with views from wider travel around the world.

Yoshida is his family name.
