Traditionally outfitted women: Meiji Jingu, Tokyo, Japan

The Meiji shrine is in Shibuya, Tokyo. It is such a beautiful and peaceful locale in the middle of Tokyo.

Japan: Hakone

We stayed at the Fujiya Hotel, a beautiful resort (supposedly one of the oldest hotels in Japan) in Hakone. It has natural hot springs and an old world feel to it. We loved it so much, that we extended our stay by an additional night.

Photography: Some images from Japan (Updated)

Last year, we visited Japan. It was probably the best vacation of my life – and I am in love with the place. I hope to go back many more times.

UPDATE: Some folks were kind enough to write me and let me know that a good practice when posting images is to post a single image at a time. This is so that those that want to comment and critique would be able to do so on the specific image. So – with my apologies – I am going to split this post up into individual images. Thanks for bearing with me as I get a handle on this whole blogging thing 🙂

I am keeping the picture of the 2 gents in Kyoto under a cherry blossom tree in this post.

Your comments and critiques are most welcome…
