Somewhere in Japan: Fujigoko (Winter 2010)

Every time I’ve gone to Japan, I’ve been fortunate enough to explore Tokyo and the surrounding prefectures. As a result, I’ve taken hundreds of photos.

I thought I’d share some more.

I think we were at an old corn mill. Although we had (really great) soba for lunch.

This place was packed with people but I still managed to steal this shot. I think this was attempt five or six. Totally worth the effort and wait.

The only (say it like a Nihonjin) Ma-ku-do-na-lu-do’s I ever saw written in Katakana. The rest were in english.
