All down for a swimming

This was our first photo, our two sons meet & greet, taken shortly after getting back from the hospital. From that first tantalizing hug, big brother’s been so gentle and attentive, it makes me bleary-eyed.


  • Mottainai Campaign Goods


NAKAGAWA Yūki, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture

We were waste deep in a field full of rape blossoms when our child suddenly decided that it was “masks off, no need for that out here!”.

The cat and me

IIDA Yoshiyuki, Hiratsuka, Kanagawa Prefecture

My mother’s in a wheel chair now, but with her cat along, it’s actually quite enjoyable.

Grape picking 101

KUSUDA Sōjirō, Kumamoto City, Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu

Grape picking was a first for all of us… We had such a wonderful time stuffing ourselves with grapes, surrounded by a world of dappled light and sweet aromas. I don’t think we’ll ever forget it.

Good Morning !

KIM Kirari, Amagasaki City, Hyōgo Prefecture

It’s Dad’s birthday ♥ We lit up the candles and whooped up a welcome. Happy birthday dad!! the one who comes home tired and worn from shifting home to work and back again and again. It’s rough, but we love you for it !

Where We Were One

What makes me marvel is how this father of ours can see things from his child’s perspective, move along at the same pace and make our child’s discoveries feel so important.

White Wall, Old Friend

I don’t know how often I’ve passed by this old, white wall, always thinking: “great place for a portrait !” But try holding down 3 kids for a selfie, a bit wild but we got it done.

Good Day for Smiles

AMANO Mari, Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture

We hadn’t even moved in yet, but when we stopped by for a visit and discovered that our new, wooden garden deck was done: INSTANT PARTY! – we broke out the soap bubbles to celebrate …and when we left, our shiny, new deck was covered with stains.

All for One and One for All: by height ! \ (^o^) /
