Welcome back to Tokyo Weekender’s series, TW Creatives. In this series, we feature various works by Japan-based writers, photographers, videographers, illustrators and other creatives in a bid to provide one additional platform for them to exhibit their talent. The works submitted here belong entirely to the creators — Tokyo Weekender only takes pride in being one of their most passionate supporters! 

For our second entry, we present a few of the many beautiful shots the Kanagawa-based photographer John Yokoyama has taken over the years in Kanagawa and Tokyo.
