116 "soap operas" by mature women living in Tokyo.

Remembering their youth, the ladies are living in their sanctuary gracefully, coquettishly and sometime boldly, as if they are playing the heroines of soap opera.
The photographer Tomoaki Makino takes fresh view of the middle-aged women of his mother's generation with his first photobook.
