1000: Yonezawa Road - beech woods (Morita)

A remnant of the historical Yonezawa Road, over the mountains of northern Honshu. First opened around 1520, for nearly four centuries this way a major means of communication, until supplanted by the line of the modern road in the Meiji era. Never designed for wheeled traffic, these once-busy stones are now covered with moss, dappled with sunlight filtering through the beech leaves.


Born 1946 in Osaka, Morita set out as a freelance scenic photographer in 1975. He has had numerous collections of his work published in book form, as well as calendars and other media, and continues a punishing schedule, spending 200 days a year tramping the Japanese archipelago for material. (Morita is his family name.)
