Hakone, a really beautiful area
I agree - great to get out of Tokyo and into the mountains. Please continue to post your beautiful Japan pics. A couple of decades since I was there but still your beautiful images bring back memories.

Did you do the cable car ride? Did you visit the sculpture garden?

Please keep the series going!
Many thanks. When I finally finish processing these photos I suspect that I will feel quite sorry I don't have more.

Unfortunately we didn't make it to either due to insufficient time. I think we could have quite happily stayed there for several days seeing sites and hiking.

Here are a couple of shots from Hakone with the DA 21mm.

Some DA 21mm shots from the north-east of Spain

This one I converted to B&W to hide the dreaded green blob flare

Nice market shot. Wondering if you ever got any type of reaction from Japanese folks from seeing a European/American tourist taking photos?

Not that I remember. Tourists make up the majority of the people there, at least in the parts of the market that are open to the public, but most of them are Japanese. I think they pretty much ignore camera-toting tourists.

Here are a few from a park in Tokyo, the name of which I don't recall. I cloned out a couple of tall buildings from the first one as I felt that without them the picture looks a lot more rural and tranquil.

What I would have suspected. The Japanese are such shutterbugs themselves that seeing one more camera is probably not really a major event.

The first image is a stitched panorama from the DA 21mm, taken from the balcony of a bakery/restaurant in Alquézar, north-east Spain which sits on the cliff face overlooking this canyon.

Arjay Bee - thanks for the correction of Tsujiki to Tsukiji. You would think with the photo below I would have managed to spell it correctly



I caused confusion for a poor rail worker the day that we went to Kamakura. There was a problem on the line and while trying to ask for help and an alternative way to get there I asked for the way to "Kurakama"

Anyway, here are a few night shots from Shinjuku in Tokyo, where it was tough to use a tripod due to the number of people, but I managed.
