We didn't do much today. We spent time with the kids and made hat with the mikan skin... :)
I told you yesterday that I would publish more picture from Nikko Cedar Avenue... I went back there today again!
The weather in Japan has been quite nice in the last couple of days, and I've been shooting a lot around the Nikko Cedar Avenue. It is by far my favorite place in the area. You might see a lot of pictures from Suginamiki in the future post of the blog... so that you know! :)
It's been several years since I try to motivate myself to write blog articles daily. But there is always something that cuts my momentum.
Today I want to do that simple. I will create a post per day that will include one or maybe only two images. I will share pictures which document my daily life here in Japan, nothing more.
Here is Regular Everyday Normal Guy in Japan 01
Recently I've been hunting for old film cameras, and for this purpose, I went to an area in Nikko called Imaichi. Imaichi is the most populated area of Nikko. There, I found some elderly people playing "ground golf," and I decided to stop to say HI!
No this is not Irohazaka. This is road number 277 who begins at Yumoto Onsen and get you to Okorogawa. Those you follow me on Youtube know that I've recently purchased a Honda Little Cub, which is a small 50cc motorcycle made by Honda. I bought the bike mostly to get out and shoot more photos and videos. I sometimes find that driving a car in Japan is a hustle, purchasing a small motorbike solved the problem. Today I decided to get back on road 277 for the second time. I didn't drive all the way to Okorogawa, but it's on my list for next week!
Last year I started offering photography excursion to travelers who want to get the best out of their trip in Nikko. During the one-day "photo tour" I bring my customers to different areas where they can shoot beautiful images that suit their interest, plus they get to see a lot more places than any regular travelers who visit Nikko on a one day trip. Win/Win!!!
Two weeks ago, I had a client from Australia who was lucky enough to book his excursion during the Setsubun Festival, a very friendly Japanese event, where the Demon gets hunted, and "o-kashi" gets thrown at the participants.
We had a blast shooting the small Festival, and he felt fortunate to be in Nikko on that day. When you travel, do you plan your trip according to a special event and festival?
