Myanmar/Burma Photo Gallery

Japanese | English

I am a professional photographer named Goto Osami, living in Tokyo, Japan. I have been to Myanmar/Burma seven times, for over a total of 400 days since 1987.

My first visit to Burma was in 1987. "Burma is the realm of dreams". A Japanese man who happened to share a room with me in Turfan, China said these words, and they led me to Burma. Although my tourist visa was valid for only one week, I found his words to be true. From that time on, I have soaked myself in Ayeyarwady river and I have become Myanmar freak. In this home page, I insert mainly photographs taken since 1994 in Myanmar.

The Light of the Jungle / The story in Myanmar Jungle
This is a life story of a little leaf boy born under a starry night sky. He grows up in a jungle where elephants, leopards, deer, monkeys or birds bring continuous changes. As he becomes a tree spirit, he comes across with the other tree spirit and learns about the system of the forest and the rules of nature. Through the battle of eat-or-being-eaten in the jungle, he keeps thinking about how he can be useful to others.
Based on the author's long-time experience in a tropical jungle (in Myanmar), this is a story filled with lively description of the colorful nature of a jungle. It is a fantasy, introducing the readers about the system of the forest, continuous life cycles, and conflicts between modern society and the nature to think about them.
