Freezing my ass with Tokyo Street View to shoot pictures & videos in the middle of a blizzard !
At an altitude of 1400 meters above sea level, the Senjogahara Marshland (戦場ヶ原) covers the plateau between Lake Chuzenji and Yumoto Onsen. Beautiful in Autumn, the marshland also offers a fantastic sight in Winter… but be prepared, it can be extremely cold and windy, like on that day !
With deserted roads, new year is a good opportunity to go for a drive !
Doesn’t this look perfect?
Stunning view of Tokyo from the observation platform at Tokyo Skytree on a clear morning in winter !
French fries in an Italian restaurant: with sun dried tomatoes! Was really good.
A few night shots of the Tokyo cityscape at night.
Dear Readers, may this coming year bring you happiness, health and wealth !
Enjoying mountains roads with snow tires and AWD :)
Back in Jigokudani Monkey Park once more : just 280km away from Tokyo !
The Atomic Bomb Dome memorial in Hiroshima.
Always a moving visit.
My first time-lapse: a beautiful sunrise over Tokyo compressed in 90s: 2700 pictures shot from 4:30am to 8:30am ! Music from http://www.bensound.com.
Year end rush + switch to MAC OS + change of web hosting company = huge photo backlog to process and upload… Stay tuned !
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.
