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.

Welcome to Fujigoko
Most street signs featured silhouettes of Fuji-san.
Regional Old house.
Regional modernized house with traditional roofing.
Modern estate. We were all hoping someone would come out and invite us in for tea…
Abstract closeup of the pond. Looks like a painting.
Another. No camera tricks other than a polarizer.
One of my favorite photos from that day.
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.
Roof Closeup
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.
