Kapal , a mascot representing the city of Shiki, in Saitama Prefecture

I first met Hiro on the road to Minamisanriku, where the scars of the earthquake and tsunami were still healing. My first impression of him was how he was enjoying ice cream at every stop we made for a break. 

The photos taken by Hiro captured and clearly showed the feelings of Kapal, who supposedly have an expressionless face. I love his personality and his photos, which are so neutral and easy to be around.
