Biography Shiro Shirahata


Shiro Shirahata was born in 1933. At the age of 33 he participated for the first time in a climbing expedition, achieving five first ascents in the Hindu Kush. Four years later, after an expedition to the Punjab, he reached 8000 m as a member of a larger expedition to Makalu. Further expeditions see him in the Pamir and the Peruvian Andes

Amost every year he organized extensive photographic trips: to Garhwal and other mountains in India, to the European Alps, the Rocky Mountains, the Nepal Himalaya (Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Everest and Kangchenjunga groups, Jugal and Ganesh Himal, Western Nepal), the Karakorum (Hunza, Batura, Baltoro, Biafo, Hispar, Minapin and Shimshal), to Nanga Parbat, to the Northern Hindu Kush and the Hindu Raj.

His long journeys and expeditions resulted in many publications and exhibitions. He gained international reputation for his books on the Japanese Alps, the European Alps, the Nepal Himalaya, the Karakorum and the Rocky Mountains, which were translated into as many as seven languages. 

His 1978 book The Alps appeared in seven languages, and in 1983 the book Nepal-Himalaya was published simultaneously in seven countries. This was followed in 1986 by the book The Beauty of South Korea in four volumes. In addition he held more than twenty photo exhibitions throughout Japan.

He has received many honors and awards, both in Europe and Japan. Shiro Shirahata is president of the mountain photography club Shiroi Mine and member of the Japan Photographic Association, the Japan Alpine Club and the Japan Rock Climbing Club.
