On the last day of April, 1980, FURUYA Seiichi traveled to Amsterdam by car, (he was accompanying MORIYAMA Daido who visited Graz for three weeks to hold a solo exhibition at the Forum Stadtpark, Graz), and was so captivated by the energy of the city that from June he spent three months there photographing, supporting himself with a job as a waiter in a Japanese restaurant.  He spent his spare time and weekends photographing, returning to his tiny room in the attic over the restaurant to develop the film.  Christine visited FURUYA there for a short period and ten months later, their son, Komyo, was born.  The expensive Japanese restaurant, ‘Toga’, where he worked, went out of business at the same time he left.  Immediately upon his return to Graz, he began work on this, his first photo book*.
