Early autumn in Tokyo.
Tokyo Tower and the Mori Tower of Roppongi Hills at night.
A few long exposure shots at Roppongi Hills, including the entrance to Mori Tower and Maman, the spider.
Shibuya on a Monday morning with Taxis and Yamanote-sen in the background.
Took this one while walking the Shibuya crossing !
The famous Shibuya building, bathed in morning sunlight.
Morning scene in Shibuya.
If it wasn’t for the systematic traffic jams on the way back, Yamanashi would be the perfect place to spend all my weekends ! PS: Yes, it’s Fujisan in the background.
Playing with the focus ring, 1cm away from the water.
Typical subway scene on a weekend in Tokyo.
A few long exposure shots from Hokkaido, trying to frame the Milky Way and Mt Yotei together.
Lovely little beach near the Cape Shakotan in Hokkaido. Went there twice, once around 06:00 in the morning, and the second time around 16:00. On both occasions kids were swimming.
Cape Kamui on the Shakotan Peninsula in Hokkaido offers an impressive sight. It used to be forbidden to women!
An omnipresent sight in Niseko, the Mount Yōtei !
Our onsen exploration in Niseko continues, this time at the Hotel Kanronomori. One the first shot, you can see what happens to my lens when I enter the bath area.
Excellent sushis from Otaru, Hokkaido.
Lavender, flowers, and tourists – mostly chinese – everywhere at the Tomita Farm in Furano, Hokkaido!
Summer in Hokkaido: this is the first time I see so many dragonflies!
The blue pond near Furano in Hokkaido. The blue color is due to Aluminium.
These were shots at the Saika Farm, a lot more quiet than the Farm Tomita.
Makkari Hot Spring near Rusustsu in Hokkaido offers a beautiful outside bath !
Shiroi Koibito Park in Sapporo, where you can visit a chocolate factory !
Maybe one day… in the meantime, just playing with the zoom ring of the lens during a long exposure.
Light pollution sometimes produces nice effects – look at these colors !
Niseko offers nice and reasonably priced properties to rent for the summer !
Leaving Aomori towards Hakodate, therefore saying goodbye to Honshu and preparing ourselves to say hello to Hokkaido!
Relaxing dip in a hot spring with sea view in Asamushi Onsen !
What can be better than relaxing in a hot spring after a morning jog by the sea ?
Two of my favourite shots from our last vacation. Could not decide which I prefer so I post both.
Small Nebuta Matsuri (typical festival from Aomori) in front of our hotel the day we were there.
