The purpose of this blog is to document my time in Japan. In August 08 I arrived in Japan and began two months of language school in Tokyo. And in October I begin studying at a Japanese university in Tokyo, until August 09. One full year in Japan. (minus a week I spent in Shanghai.) At the end, I intended to have a sort of blog diary with at least 365 photos that could represent my year in Japan. I had many more than 365 photos, but about half-way through the year, I abandoned this poor blog.
Almost a year after leaving Japan, I’m back in Japan again for at least a year and I’ve brought this blog back to life. This time I am nowhere near Tokyo. Instead, I will am in the Japanese inaka (countryside), which is quite a different experience.
There are 2 cameras that I use to take these pictures. I have a point and shoot 5 megapixel Casio Exilim from 2005, but most pictures are taken with my Nikon D80, which I’ve had since 2008.For the D80, I have 3 lenses. A 35 mm fixed lens, a 18 to 50 mm lens (a kit lens), and a 18 to 200 mm telephoto lens.
Please enjoy the blog!
