Naoki Honjo is a Japanese photographer who takes pictures of cityscapes in a unique way. Using the tilt photography concept, the cities he captures end up looking like dioramas, blurring the lines between reality and a miniature world.

A special event taking place at the Ichihara Lakeside Museum will showcase around 150 works from Honjo's portfolio, including a variety of pieces which haven't been published before. This is also the first large scale solo exhibition that Honjo has been involved in.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 800 yen.
