    "For Nana, photography is in her blood. Her dad is in the camera business, and she's always been around them. The first thing you notice about Nana is a certain sharpness about her. She never hesitates when taking a shot. She simply sees what she wants, and goes after it. For someone like me, who has to spend some time deliberating before taking a shot, it can be quite disarming. It's almost like her camera is an extension of her body.

    But those same traits are what make her so much fun to be around. She never hesitates about commiting to a dicision, even if it's wrong, ha! But thankfully that's rarely the case. More usual will be a grand adventure of some kind. Whether darting through the back alleys of Tokyo, or tracking through the country side in search of tanuki, Nana is sure to guide you to your destination intact, yet seeing the world in a new way.

    Make the trip--it's a good place to be."

    "I feel that her work is something you have to drink in. For me, to view her photography involves an experience of deeply sighing and unraveling a bit. It's filled with amazing light, color and the perfect balance of stillness. Lovely, lovely work."

    "Nanako's photos have such a lovely atmosphere, a grainy nostalgia, sometimes even a beautiful loneliness to them. her feet and food photos are fabulous, and some of my favorites on flickr!

    she's just a wonderful person, with great taste in music (ivy, mogwai AND debussy!), movies, and footwear. i always look forward to her warm, witty comments, and, of course, her ever improving photographs. =)"

    "I haven't written any testimonial for Nanako yet, because I've been thinking for a long time how to verbalize my thought in best way. Today I've given up. She is just too talented to be human and too young to be so professional! She is the best photographer-painter because of her amazing sense of colours. Every photo she took is perfect.

    thanks for sharing Your art with us! :*"

    Ben XT Cagan says:

    "I've only been aware of Nana for a short time now, but it's already clear, from her close following and more importantly from her photographs, that she is something special. Many of the people here testify to being 'in love with' nana's work, which identifies the intimate nature of her images.

    Certainly, what I 'love' most is the clarity with which she presents her subject to the viewer, and the way she manages to go beyond a simple hunt for the aesthetic, for the 'cool' that so many photographers, particularly young ones, try to capture; instead nana gives the viewer something that they can fall in love with."

    "Nanako's a sweet flickr friend of mine. There's something about her fotos, specifically her polas, that make me feel good inside, they make me smile. A lot of young photographers her age, especially here in the U.S can't wait to get their hands on digital cameras, but not Nana, she's all about film. With the sophisticated, stylish and really artistic style of photography she possess at her age, you know for a fact her photography's going to take her somewhere in the future. Plus I don't know anyone her age who uses a Hassy, that's just way too cool. It'd be a privilege if I get to hang out with her and go photographing in the future. If only San Francisco wasn't thousands of miles away from Japan. >__<"

    First time I've read her profile I saw her age, and I was surprised to see that a 18 girl could be such a great talented photographer!

    She has an unique eye for composition, rare sense of beauty and incredible feeling with soft colors and b/w.

    When everybody turn their passion to digital, she is an analogic girl, and I love that! She use a lot of stunning and professional cams with disarming simplicity.

    But it's not enough! She is a talented artist with watercolors and drawings, I definitely LOVE her draws, and hope to see other of them soon.

    Her talent and genius is reflected in her personality: Nana is a sweet kind and wonderful girl, she can catch you and you can't do nothing, because it's so great to be her friend ;)

    Arigato my friend!"

She is really a happy and intelligent girl, which beside is even very pretty. *nanako has a wonderful sense of humore and it is always exiting to leave through her pictures over and over again. I am still expecting a lot from her. Keep it up sister!!"
