    Karin Borghouts was invited to photograph in Saga, Japan in December 2005. Ongoing since 1999, the project ‘European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today’, consists of inviting European photographers to make images of the various prefectures of Japan on the theme of contemporary life. This project is linked to the European Capital of Culture (Patras in Greece in 2006).
    16 photographs Karin Borghouts made in the prefecture Saga (Kyushu) are published in the book “European Eyes on Japan/Japan Today. Vol.8” together with the pictures of Pentti Sammallahti (Finland), Stratos Kalafatis (Greece) and Eleni Maligoura (Greece).
    The prints were exhibited in Japan in the museums of Saga and Fuskushima and in Flanders Center in Osaka (JP), in Greece in Athens and Thessaloniki, in Belgium in Croxhapox Ghent and De Mijlpaal Heusden-Zolder. The curator of European Eyes on Japan is Mikiko Kikuta
