Small Worlds - The Tiny Forest

This beautiful temple and cemetery is the resting place for thousands of Japanese people from many centuries ago.
A gorgeous place, with details only places with so much history can offer.

Animal Portraits - Japanese Macaque

These small macaques spend their time bathing in the natural hot springs in Japan when not foraging for food. These non-aggressive monkeys coexist harmoniously with the people, though prefer to do things their own way.

Not far from Lake Chuuzenji in Nikko, walking the senjogahara forest is a hard day, and thankfully followed by a wonderful relaxing night in an onsen.

Almost Parallel

Almost Parallel

Taken at a random location somewhere in central east Hokkaido. I liked the way the fences, trees and weeds were almost parallel but somewhat worn out from the many seasons.
I enjoyed the subtle texture of the snow that continued the same concept with the lines.
