Model and haikyo, Part 1: Azusa in Kinugawa

Last weekend I took a crowd of passionate photographers up to the Nikko area for some haikyo [abandoned building] action. We also took along Azusa, a model I work with a fair bit here in Tokyo.

My plan all along for including models in these decrepit settings is to go 'high fashion', so this was just a recce and a practice run.

This was the kitchen of the abandoned hotel we went to.
