Akashi Gallery

Calle Rosselló, 197, Barcelona

AKASHI GALLERY was created by two photographers, Tina Bagué and Toru Morimoto in 2012. In 2010, The two photographers carried out The Japan Photo Project, a documentary photo project in which they traveled 42,000km across Japan by a motor home for 365 days in order to make a photography book “JAPAN/日本” (The Private Space Books, 2011). During this trip, they encountered many charming and unique cafés. Some of them were created by artists. Being inspired by them, they decided to create a Japanese dining space with a photo gallery. AKASHI is the name of a small Japanese town on the coast of Honshu, main island of Japan.
