Gifu City Mountain Islands
A view from Gifu Castle, January 2009. I always thought the mountains and hills looked like island in a sea of city. An interesting mix of urban/natural scenery.
A little girl tentatively checks out that big block thing from Castle in the Sky, at the Ghibli Museum, December 2008.
Somewhere in Fukushima, August 2008. Can someone tell me what kind of flower this is?
紅葉 (Autumn Colours)
In honour of fall, here’s a Japanese maple tree (I believe?) turned red in November 2010. Shot at Meiji Mura.
Shot this one back in August 2008, but I couldn’t tell you where. I have a few of those.
