Just back from a successful and fun whirlwind trip to New York for PhotoExpo Plus, and I’m headed to Japan at the end of the week. The purpose of my visit to Japan is primarily photography, so I plan to take my time as I get to know some of the more historic and rural parts of the country. Any other activity such as sampling Fugu is purely incidental!
Here’s an overview of my itinerary: I’ll be passing through Tokyo long enough to make some photos, then spending some time in Kyoto. From Kyoto I’ll move on to the old imperial capital of Nara, and then stay at a temple in Mount Koyo. Next, I’ll be hiking portions of the old Kumano kodo. Finally, I’ll visit Shikoku Island and pay a visit to Awagami—the mill that makes the washi I like to print on. I am very excited about this adventure, and hope to be sharing images with you along the way!
