Mount Fuji

When I arrived to Japan in the beginning of November 2013 to visit my son that lived there at the time the captain told us that Mount Fuji could be seen in the morning light from the plane I managed to snap a few quick shots before I had to put the camera down as we were coming in for landing at Nagoya.

High mountains in Japan

I am very fascinated by flying and love looking down on the landscape. Here I have caught the spare Japanese high mountains close to the clouds when flying out from Japan in 2013.

Pondering the textures of the mountains and the clouds I share this post with The Daily Post´s weekly Photography Challenge: Layered.

Hanami on Sakura-dōri in Nagoya

I arrived to Nagoya in Japan in the beginning of april 2013 to visit my son that lived there at the time. The second day in Japan my son took my to see the flowering Sakura along Yamazaki river. A lot of people were celebrating hanami and the streets were full of people.


Demon mural by Osu Kanon in Nagoya

At first I thought this was giant graffiti but it is a part of the Osu Kannon Temple in Nagoya. Or more correctly the paintings act as a backdrop to the temple. The demon also stand guard as statues by the temple entrance. To see one of them look here.

Steep stairs at Arayashima

img_6816I very much wanted to see the macaques living  in the monkey park in Arayashima, Japan. But in order to get there I had to climb these stairs. When we walked down I saw a young girl that also seemed to think the stairs tested her endurance. But we both managed to climb the stairs. The picture is taken in the autumn of 2013.
