1500: Warehouses, Kurashiki (Keiji)

Warehouses cluster by the waterway in this beautifully preserved area of Kurashiki. These were run by the Tonya, the forerunner of Japan's famously beaurocratic distribution system. The architect's eye faithfully depicts details of the buildings, while the artist's produces a fine composition.

Born in 1930, in Gifu Prefecture, Yoshida Keiji graduated in 1952 from what is now the Tokyo University of the Arts, and trained as an architect. 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.
