Photographer Kotori Kawashima spent time with his buddy's four-year-old girl in a rural Japanese village, and he apprehended that she had to be the subject of his next series. Her delightful adventures and expressive face were too dainty to hold.
Kotori followed the bubbly little girl on her daily adventures. They went to the beach, ice cream parlor, Paris. While watching this little girl discovering things for the first time is entirely cute and a good reminder to acknowledge the little things in life.
Kawashima organized the photos into a book called 'Mirai Chan ' which can be roughly rendered as "Little Miss Future." People throughout the world fell in love with the rosy-cheeked girl and the book quickly became a best-seller in Japan. This book even won the Kodansha Publishing Culture Award Photos Award in 2011.
