ABOUT FIND/47

FIND/47 is a photo-sharing community designed to promote stunning scenes from Japan's most overlooked localities.

The dynamic photographs archived on this website showcase off-the-beaten-track scenes of nature, historical buildings, regional festivals and customs, and other local subjects from across Japan. Such subjects have been captured for years—both by professionals and casual photographers who often discover gems in their own backyards that more seasoned lensmen may overlook—but there has never been an organized framework for distributing these pictures.

FIND/47 is a community-based photographic archive service that allows anyone around the world to reuse the photographs published on the site. By inviting the public to browse our archives, allowing them to find surprising and unexpected moments of beauty that they can then publish in media worldwide, we hope to encourage people of all nationalities to travel to Japan and explore even those parts of the country that rarely appear in tourist guides.
