What is




YO-CLOWN @ NEW YORK 2017 is a photobook conceived and published by New York City based actor, Yoichiro Kawakami.


YO-CLOWN @ NEW YORK 2017 tells the story about Yo-Clown, an itinerant clown who travels throughout New York City entertaining the people he meets along the way. At night, he returns to the ocean, where he sleeps under the moon and cries himself to sleep. All through the night, he dreams of the next day when he will once again travel throughout his beloved New York, bringing joy to those he meets along the way.

Yoichiro was inspired to create Yo-Clown by the beauty of New York that never fades.; ordinary days that never repeat again.

Actor- Yoichiro Kawakami
