Princess Mononoke Forest

  Apr 16th, 2013

I went to Yakushima recently and took some photos near the beach and in the forest. Driving just a short distance produced such varied scenery changes, it was really interesting to get the chance to take photos different from the normal sets. Here are a few scenes from the forest that inspired some of Miyazaki Hayao’s movie creations including Princess Mononoke.
