Japan / 日本

Japan was my home from 1994 to 2010. I lived and worked in Hokkaido 北海道, Shikoku 四国, and Tokyo 東京. Some people prefer urban hells and the homogeneity of their international diversity; I prefer provincial areas where time passes slowly, rents are lower, and undiluted cultures and traditions linger. Some of these pictures were shot with a cruddy old 1MB Fuji digital camera.
