Japan is Photogenic in Autumn: Part One

I have been having a great time with my new camera this season, and while some more experienced photographers might disagree, it sure is difficult to take a bad photo of Japan in Autumn.

I originally intended to put everything all in one post, but there are just too many good things to share with you all, so I’m splitting it up into parts one and two.

Part one is a few of the highlights from my latest trip to Shirakawago and Takayama, in Gifu Prefecture.

This was Jordan and my third time to Shirakawago, the historical village and a UN World Heritage Site, but our first time in Autumn.

Shirakawago Inn

This is the building we stayed in overnight. It was very traditional, very rustic and very COLD.

After visiting the Shirakawago viewpoint in the morning, we headed to Takayama to enjoy the morning market and the historic district.

One of Takayama's specialties: sake breweries. The cedar ball hanging outside indicates how recently the sake was made.

    • Haha thanks for that, I see this stuff all the time but yet it never ceases to entertain me. I think my all time favourite (that I’ve personally seen) was a lady pushing her son (probably) in a wheelchair in a small town, and the back of her purple-and-yellow varsity-style jacket said “Cocaine dealer” in giant letters.

      Also, glad you enjoyed the photos! :)
