Unusual views of outstanding sights*, part 1a

I am proud to introduce a selection of work taken from my Japan trip last year.

Rather than presenting a chronological travelogue, the pictures have been presented around generic themes; over the next few days I shall be posting images under various subjects such as Landscape, Architecture, Food & Drink. Tonight, People.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank D&L once again for their hospitality, generosity and most of all for introducing me to this wonderful country.
