Discovering Japan

Been working here since 3rd quarter of 2010 and I haven't even covered half of the must-see places.

Japan is truly a place where it's good to be a photographer.

Some of the photos I took over the past 2 years.

Waaauw. My girl and I are saving up to go to Japan for a big vacation. It's been our dream for years now. Great photos. They're a reminder of why we want to go.

I was there in 2009. The tower was not even 100m during that time. It looks massive.

Indeed. Now that it's complete, during the day the shadow is like a kilometer long. Looking at it and remembering the 3/11 quake actually scares me.

Thanks Hunterkingxxl! Hopefully you and your girl can come and visit Japan. And if you do, don't miss going to Hiroshima, Kyoto, Mount Fuji (Kawaguchiko) and Shirakawa-go.

Iwakuni Bridge (near Hiroshima). This bridge was made 400 years ago without using any single nail.

Awesome photos!!! Japan has always been on my list of places to go before I die. Japanese culture is as rich in millennial history, as it is in modern technology. It is the best of both worlds.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

Thanks everyone!

It's spring time in Japan! So I went to Kawaguchiko to see this year's Shibazakura. The park boasts of having 700,000 pink flowers planted overlooking the majestic Mount Fuji. It was only around 60% blooming when I went, my only consolation was that it was a clear and sunny day and Mt. Fuji was very visible.
