Akitake Uematsu

「No Beer No Mountain !」

Born and living in Hotaka, Azumino City, Nagano Prefecture.
Guided by alpine butterflies, I wandered into the mountains and has been living a life of mountain travel among the flowers, the birds, the butterflies, the wind and moon. While working as a mountaineering guide and wildlife researcher, I have been wandering not only in Japan but also in mountains abroad. Recently, I have become fond of traveling to islands in Japan, and I am experiencing their magnificence. My favorite phrase is "No Beer, No Life". I am also a representative of the Wildlife Information Center, the chairman of the Shinshu Wild Bird Society, a representative of the Shinshu Eagle Hawk Migration Research Group, and a member of the Shinano Branch of the Japan Alpine Club.
