    Great place to be.
    Green, peaceful, quiet (I hope).

    So, making up your mind on changing continent? Or old Rising Sun still has something to give?
    Anyway it’ll be “drugstore monday” 🙂

    Love the site. I miss Japan so much, can’t wait to go back next year. Looks like all these were shot in AP at f/1.4 and iso200, some of them are over-exposed and others have distracting blur; maybe you’re experimenting with a new lens but you should try a couple stops down on wider pan shots especially during the day with good light, and the shots with people moving in the foreground.
