Outstanding work of Japanese sport photographer who is also focused on European football and fashion.

Born in Aomori, Japan Tomoki started his career as a sports photographer, working at the same time as a studio assistant and a trainee photographer to broaden his knowledge of lighting and widen his horizons. In 2011 he turned freelance  and moved to London.

At the moment his work focused mainly on sports, particularly European football, fashion, and  street photography mainly for Japanese magazines and newspapers.

Sumo is a competitive full-contact wrestling sport originated in Japan. Even today Sumo includes many ritual elements, and preserves ancient traditions from the days when Sumo was used in Shinto religion.

There are six Grand Sumo tournaments (or honbasho) each year: three at The Sumo Hall in Ryōgoku, Tokyo, and one each in Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka.
