Johan Rooms is a traveler.

.

@Johanr Born in Belgium and Belgian, he lived in Denmark fir many years and now he lives and works in Tokyo.

Johan a.k.a in Instagram as @Johanr is a multiskilled man. He is photographer, director, developer and entrepreneur. I met his Instagram Stream by chance.  Besides being a good photographer and offering us good quality works, what really catched my attention was his condition of european citizen living in Japan.

.

We were recently thinking about launching our Japanese Instagramers Group and I was trying to discover new artists from there.

I took contact with him and kept his contact in my agenda for a potential next post. Weeks after, he contacted by mail. He wanted to introduce me a project, a nice one, a human one. And i thought it would be a good idea to support his idea and his project.

.

What is #thisisJapan project?

.

First, you have to know that Johan is exploring emerging technologies to improve the digital landscape with engaging creative solutions.

.

The main idea Johan had is to create a photo book from Instagram users pics (available for picplz users too) tagged with a specific hashtagscalled #thisisjapan .

Of course, only pics of those instagramers who would give their permission to.

The book would be available as a downloadable e-book and on demand print version. Hashtags would be #thisisjapan across all media and also あらゆるメディアで#thisisjapanのハッシュタグをお使いください。

.

All proceeds from the book would go to charity organisations such as Second Harvest Japan and others doing great work in the Tohoku area.
