Scenic Japan

We had some short trips around the Kanto region this summer. I took some photos trying to catch the scenic beauty and atmosphere of Japan. For your enjoyment: 

From Hakone mountain area (Mt. Fuji): 

From the city of Yokohama – downtown area:


From Chiba prefecture. Across the bay from Tokyo: 

Where I live

These photos were taken during spring and shows glimpses of the area where I live. Here in the outskirts of Tokyo, the buzzing of city life isn’t so prevalent, rather the nature is vividly living and breathing here. I have not taken photos of the high class area, nor the low class, so these photos will not give a clear image of this area. I have however tried to capture the atmosphere of the place and the beauty of nature.

I hope you will enjoy.

For a moment…

This morning, after a night of typhoon-like downpour of rain, I had my coffee and peanut-whip sandwich on my balcony. The view (see photo) was so green and the air was fresh and renewed. Dew drops on the leafs and the sun rising revealing a beautiful blue sky. The fragrance of morning, wet soil and leafs. 

And for a moment of peace I managed to forget all my concerns, trouble and circumstances and was able to simply breath in The Lord’s refreshing breath.
