Couples Portraits in Osaki-Shimojima Island

Sustainable Living

We recently visited a picturesque little village called Kubi in the beautiful Osaki-Shimojima Island to photograph this charming couple. He brews new type of Sake using pesticide free lemons which he grows with his team, and she is a singer-songwriter with an incredible voice based in Hiroshima. Together, they are renovating their 50 year old seaside house on their own with the help of some knowledgeable friends. Self renovation, solar power, composting toilets — their ideas on sustainable living is so inspirational, and we can't wait to visit them again once their home is completed.
