【Yoru-no-Kei Project】 
Since ancient times, in Japan, the nighttime scenery was called as “Yoru-no-Kei”. Around 1800 the glow of the moon and the light of the lanterns were beautifully painted into Ukyo-e, which eventually was established as a form of expression. For instance, Katsushika Ōi, the daughter of the Ukiyo-e master Katsushika Hokusai, has left behind Ukiyo-e in which beautiful color and outstanding use of light were portrayed into the night scenery.

Bankohdoh’s owner and photographer Takashi Kuriyama, alongside graphic designer Tomonori Okazaki, out of respect for Yoru-no-Kei and Katsushika Ōi, are engaged to spread the charm of the “Yoru-no-Kei” trough a more modern point of view via photography and graphic design.
In the city of Kitakyūshū in Fukuoka Prefecture, chosen as one of the “Three New Grand Night View Cities in Japan”, took place the very first chapter of the Yoru-no-Kei Project in 2019, capturing a castle in the dark, the signboard of a tavern or some lanterns, which were later exhibited and sold as photos, graphic designs or souvenirs.
