Sneak Preview: Japan

On June 18th, all I did was travel. Straight from the hotel to Auckland airport, then a 12h flight to Singapore, a 4h layover, and a 7h overnight flight to Tokyo.

I did take ONE snapshot today, but it was just to remember the website of a NZ photo contest that I might enter. Singapore airport offered some photo opportunities (there is a free butterfly house!), but I was just too tired. Instead, I watched the Germany and then US World Cup games.

So, I’m going to give you a sneak preview of what I might see in Japan tomorrow (wink wink, nudge nudge).

June is rainy season in Japan. But the overcast sky means nice, high-contrast reflections in the lakes. Here’s a shot from Shinjuku-Gyoen park.

Here’s a popular Japanese sports drink, I guess aimed at people who like to… drink sweat? Or at those who perspire a lot? Who knows. Thanks to tomorrow’s “Pocari Sweat” model, Nick.

Japan has a lot to offer, and more to see (and eat) than you can imagine. From Grease street dancers to $100 canteloupes, we’re going to see it all! I have a feeling this is going to be a wild ride…

    Awesome!!! Guess who will give me tips when I visit Japan??! ;o)
    Keep enjoying!

  2. Hehe… well, there will be about 15 days worth of blog-post tips for Japan! Half are already queued up :-)

    One tip is: don’t come during the rainy season. I haven’t put my polarizing filter on once yet, because there wasn’t any blue to speak of, and hardly anything but overcast or rain.

  3. I hope you have an awesome trip!
    .-= B´s last blog ..Only 1 Credit Away =-.

  4. Thanks B! So far it’s been amazing… even managed a few cool pics in the rain (or in between showers).
