  1. Beautiful pictures! Makes me feel like we missed some stuff on our trip.

  2. Gorgeous colours, Jane. Iโ€™d love to go to Japan.

  3. How do you say ‘great street photography’ in Japanese? ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. What did you do, Jane??? ๐Ÿ™‚ Your images are so vibrant and colorful that now I have to visit these places!! Gorgeous shots, beautifully captured, as always. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. absolutely stunning Jane….colors so vibrant…looks like u had a GREAT time there!!!

  6. This is a great cross section, Jane. Oh, the persimmons! Gorgeous. Those, the night lights and the crowds kind of sum it up….but then you can’t leave out the temples, and….

  7. So much to like here, but my favorite is the mother and daughter image.

  8. Jane, I am not sure what to say to this magnificent post. Oh my goodness I was taken away. Each and every one of your pictures is so vibrant with such clarity. You bring to us a world that many of us will never see. How can I thank you for bringing this gift to my eyes? Absolutely phenomenal images!!! Brava!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

  9. vibrant, beautiful and elegance photos…

  10. Wonderful photo essay! My favorites are torii gate abstract, Bad Luck and Japanese Maple compositions. Backlit Japanese Maples are quite worthy photo candidates. Also love the authentic clothing captures!

  11. I like the use of the starburst sun in the first photo. Great collection.

  12. I’ve come to live vicariously!

    Am feeling unexpectedly grateful for the man in your shrine photo – it adds perspective (relativity) that I needed!

    • Thanks, Jay. Great point and so true. I have a number of images of those barrels and on their own, you have no idea how large they are – this tourist gave me some perspective. Happy you are enjoying my Japan wanderings. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  13. Wow! Such a wonderful collection Jane. Beautifully composed images. I especially like candid people shots b/c they are often full of interesting expressions!

  14. Sehr schรถn die Atmosphรคre der Stรคdte eingefangen.

  15. Well this was a visual delight, bringing back such good memories. I’d love to go back to Japan. I think my faves are bamboo, torii lantern, and especially mother and child – what a wonderful shot.

  16. Wow Jane, vibrant indeed! You’ve captured a wonderful sense of color and light in these. Especially loved mother and daughter. Top to toe, so very Japan!

  17. I am captivated by your photo of the Bamboo grove. I can sense the feeling of a gentle breeze, see some motion, and hear the sound of the stalks clicking and knocking against each other. Well done, Jane.
    ฮฉ

  18. beautiful pictures of a very colorful country, I wonder the slippers worn, they seem to me not that comfortable. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. The photo of a couple expresses that there are still people in relationship in Japan otherwise news always tell that Japanese are no more interested being in relationship.

  20. Interesting to see people wearing traditional costumes just strolling around the streets. You have captured the essence of Japan and I am glad you included a Japanese Maple ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Jude. The leaves were just starting to turn so I was happy to find some early birds. Many of the people strolling the streets are tourists experiencing wearing a kimono. Thankfully, I found some Japanese ceremonies that were authentic.

  21. Thank you for giving us your impressions of an interesting country – they are all brilliant.

  22. Brilliant impressions, colorful and vibrant!

  23. Very colorful and gorgeous photo’s Jane, love them all!

  24. Very colourful! Wonderful and full of life. I had no idea that bamboo can be that huge.

  25. Wow! The depth of colour and the clarity is incredible. I love the ‘Mother and Daughter’ image. Old and New combined.

    I have been to China but not Japan. Some images remind me a little of China, in that there is so much rich detail that I cannot understand, but that fascinates me.

  26. Excellent colors and forms. Many people are surprised to learn that bamboo is a grass.

  27. Amazing! A quick pictorial trip. Thanks

  28. So many opportunities for interesting shots in that country and city. Great job in taking us there.

  29. true, there are very colorful photo taken. i particularly like the 1st, 5th, 9th, 14th, and 16th.
    greetings robert

    • Thanks so much, Robert. I’m glad you included bad fortunes…I thought that was so interesting— if you get a negative one at the temple, this is what you do with it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really appreciate your visit and happy you enjoyed.

  30. Wow Jane, these photos are so beautiful! The city is so full of colours and super busy. โค๏ธ

  31. Gorgeous images Jane ๐Ÿ™‚ NYC looks desolate compared to Tokyo.

Love to hear what you think...
