If you ask me, what is the best of Japan? My answer will definitely be, its people. After a week during April in this beautiful country I collected my favourite shots of what makes Japan a vibrant mix of old and new, of traditions and modernization. You can find in here a photographic journey in hope to represent what Japan is all about, its people and culture.
I am writing this piece as a way to thank Japan for its amazing hospitality. You guys rock!
It is all about traditions
Unveiling the best of Japan
The land of the rising sun, has a special touch that will open your eyes in a new way you haven’t experienced before. Its culture is so intricate that just like the cherry blossoms, many of its details will leave you without words.
It is all about the details
The best of Japan is in the small details. What is interesting for us, is yet routine to millions.
It doesn’t matter where you are walking, where you are entering, time of the day or the circumstances, you will find kindness in every smile and passerby. When in Japan, the hundreds of “thank you” you will receive is going to be part of your day 24/7.
I am still speechless, just like when I get a bow from a person who has no idea who I am. I am still without words so I hope my images do the honour this far away land deserves.
