Photographic Journey  Through Japan

Fushimi Inari in Kyoto is one of the most picturesque shrines in Japan.

But Japan is also home to many extraordinary yet under appreciated nature sites such as Mount Aso in Kyushu - the largest active volcano in the country

Or Daisetsuzan National Park in Hokkaido home to multi day treks and many many grizzly bears.

Urban nature can also be special even in largest cities like Tokyo where July is the lotus flower season.

Another seasonal nature event is the fall foliage season when the cities like Kanazawa embrace the fall colors

Then there is Yakushima where it rains for 35 days a month. Home to misty mountains and ancient moss covered forests.

In summer, look no further than Okinawa with its pristine beaches and secluded atmosphere.

Country is also formed to many naturally formed onsen such as the ocean side onsen in Kyushu.

and a wonderful wildlife....
