Imaging a black hole horizon as a shadow at the center of black hole accretion disk is another method to prove/check Einstein's general relativity at strong gravitational fields. Such black hole imaging is expected to be achievable using a submillimeter wavelength VLBI (very long baseline interferometer) technique. Here, we introduce a Japanese black hole imaging project, Caravan-submm undertaken in the Andes.
