Hi everybody and welcome to only the second blog from your favorite image maker named Forest!  Wherever you are in the world hopefully you’re warm, dry, happy and healthy.  At Forest Harder Images in this short blog we’re talking about the Land Of The Rising Sun, the amazing Japan. 

In January I travelled from the heat of the Australian summer to Tokyo and Japan’s winter, where I would meet my brother.  He lives in the Northern part of Japan’s middle island (Honshu).  But for the first part of my trip we would spend time exploring Tokyo, Hiroshima, Himeji, Miyajima, Kyoto and more …  Later we would travel through the Tsunami Zone and some of the more remote snow covered countryside.

In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing on my social media feeds some glimpses of our travels through vibrant, resilient, astounding Japan.  Expect to see a nation that grapples with the clash of technology and culture, the contrast of ancient structures, pulsing cities and incredible landscapes.

Join the ride.
