Toshihiko Kawaguchi






For about 30 years in Japanese daily newspaper, The Yomiuri Shimbun,I had experience in various fields such as politics, society, and cultural entertainment as a news photographer.

I photographed all over Asia as an individual activity. It was presented as photo exhibitions and photo books on the themes of Hinduism, the Mekong River, and cities in Asia.

In 2016, I left the Japanese daily newspaper at the age of 52 and moved to Myanmar, where the new administration of Aung San Suu Kyi was born, and spent a year and a half traveling all over Myanmar by motorcycle to shoot.

In 2018, I moved to Nepal and stayed in a village at an altitude of 4000 meters at the foot of the world’s highest peak Everest for 9 months and photographed the life of the changing hill tribe.

Asia is changing rapidly with the times, and I am chasing the nostalgia of Asia that disappears with it.
