From New York to Tokyo

    Newer Older

    This is the boring part of Times Square, as you can plainly see. Hardly anything happens there... not much to see... hardly any lights... not much activity on the street. Quite dull, really.

    I have a long photo adventure scheduled for Japan, and I'm very excited! I have a rail pass and not much of a plan... other than visiting a few places I've always wanted to go. After seeing countless movies, I have quite a romantic vision of what it will be like out in the countryside. I just am not sure what to expect... Do you guys and gals have any suggestions for must-sees or must-dos in Japan? I've been to Tokyo before, but never out in the rest of the country, which I plan to do this time.

    And also, I am very glad you guys like the new feature here on the site. It looks like many of you have been dragging photos to Facebook, Twitter, and the like! I hope that "mouseover" works well for you... remember that that little thing does not appear unless you actually put your pointer on top.

      check out mt fuji and hakano for sure. try to get over to kyoto if u want more of the traditional feel. tokyo is all business and technology.

      Hey Trey. That's a great shot!
      I often look at your photos of New York and wish that I had discovered my DSLR and HDR before I went! Really want to go back and shoot the city again!
      As for Japan, Kyoto is a must see. The golden temple (Although really touristy and busy) is awesome. (I have a photo of it here somewhere....)

      Anyway, there, lake Ashi on the south of Mt Fuji and..
      (You;ve commented on that already)
      Yokohama is a pretty cool place on the coast too.!

      Have a great time and I really look forward to the photos.

      wish I could tell you where to go special in Japan, unfortunately, never been there, so I'll have to live vicariously through your photos...

      wonderful HDR

      Doesn't look boring to me. Tokyo is an electric place. Can't wait to see what you shoot.

      I'll add another vote for Kyoto and the surrounding area. Very different from Tokyo, and very beautiful.

      Please do not miss out on Kamakura. It's one of my favorite places and I'm very curious to see it through your lens.

      Seen on your photo stream. (?)
