    "modern_classic...ha..what should I say except a big thanks to you, for your honest and poetic way of viewing "a" city and people.I still need to discover a lot of this photo-stream, but so far I wonder why I got this inspiration so much from these shots, but I guess that the rational has no place in here.....thanks again for your work, and also for giving us(at least me) this possibility to travel and make my imagination works at 200%, mixing my own memories, joy and sadness from Tokyo, and your vision clearly rendered with these shots....keep going on!:)"

    "modern_classic go far away inside Japan with his photographic vision of the world. In his photos you can se the reality of the country, feel the colours and the ambient of the place he sees through the lens. Very instructive in the technical and storytelling areas."

    "modern but classic, Dairou's photography is like a visual story of his life and journeys which is hardly surprising coming from such a great lover of books and storytelling.He says his only camera is a Canon A640 but it never ceases to amazing what great shots he squeezes out of it.Friendly and supportive on flickr, i look forward to what he has in store for the future."
