Kyoto - Gion Matsuri #RandomJapan



I was in Kyoto after a shoot so I took some time to walk around... As it turns out, It was in the middle of Gion Matsuri, so I got some quick shots.

Enjoy.

Most painful Itasha yet #TokyoStreets #JapaneseRides

I've seen some really sad Itasha in my time here, and I didn't think they could possibly be more painful to look at, then this guy drove past. On the one hand, the fact that Itasha drivers do things which are against the norms of society, makes me happy, but the things they do are so...きもい that it leaves me feeling like I need to wash my eyes out with soap. To each, his own?

 I suppose even Itasha are better than bicycles.

I was in Nagano for the Togura-Kamiyamada Onsen Matsuri a few weeks back. Here is a quick and dirty selection of the sights and sounds of a typical Japanese small-town summer festival. Shot on the Sony RX100m3.

Souvenirs for Initial D fans #BecauseJapan

Mt. Haruna in Gunma Prefecture is famous for playing the role of Mt. Akina in Initial D. 

For the tiny town atop the mountain this means a good deal of tourists head up there to drive  the legendary mountain pass, take their ladies on dates to the lake and buy souvenirs, like these Initial D cookies and cakes. On a Shoot for Takasaki City, I had a chance to go up there during the day for a change, and (as I wan't driving) didn't blast past the town at pace, on my way to the ura-haruna mountain pass (which is an epic driving road) as I used to do back when I lived at the bottom of this mountain... So I got to take these pics ;)
