I am Kunito Imai, a nature and flower photographer in Tokyo.

Every year in June and July, I photograph lotus flowers in Saitama, the suburbs of Tokyo. Lotus flowers begin to open at dawn and close around noon. So I get up at 3:50 when I go photographing these flowers.

In the morning, the light gets stronger every minute and the flowers open little by little. It’s so exciting to keep up with the moment.

For more my nature and flower photographs, please visit my photo page on Facebook.
