Since 2007, Bureau d'Etudes Japonaises engages in photographic
studies of the city of Tokyo.
We strive to make our ongoing archives available online
and we produce other suitable material when necessary.
Our areas of interest cover, among others, urbanism, sociology
and botany. Our methodology is a cocktail of applied research,
empirical poetry and intuitive rationalism.
Bureau d'Etudes Japonaises is committed to maintaining high
standards of subjectivity in all studies.
