Looking for Hāfu in Tokyo
For the next phase of Hāfu2Hāfu, I will be interviewing and photographing hāfu in Tokyo from 15 June to 5 July 2017. I am looking for hāfu of all ages and from every possible country in the world combined with Japanese.
Please fill out the form below if you are interested in participating.

How long will it take?
Typically, we would sit down for about one hour to talk about various aspects of being half Japanese. This can be your home or a coffee shop or any other place suitable for a quiet conversation. At the end of this hour, we go outside to take the photo in natural daylight.
Do you need to prepare a question?
It helps if you think about what you want to talk about before we meet, but this is not a requirement. I have prepared a set of questions that should get us through most aspects. If you haven’t prepared one, your ‘Hāfu2Hāfu question’ will come up naturally by the end of our conversation.
Do you qualify for Hāfu2Hāfu?
I am looking for half Japanese people, ‘mixed’ with every possible other half in the world. You qualify if one of your parents is fully Japanese and the other has one other nationality (mixed heritage or race are fine).
What will happen with the photographs, interviews and questions?
One photograph, your Hāfu2Hāfu question and some basic personal information such as your name, age and parent’s nationalities will be published (online). All other things we discuss during the interview will remain between us and will never be disclosed in a way that it could lead back to you. Ultimately, having the project exhibited or even published are goals too. This means you should be fine with signing a release form to confirm this. If you are a minor, your parents should sign it for you.
Will you get paid?
Participating in this project is entirely benevolent.
