Fujiyama

Mt. Fuji

I took this panorama of mount Fuji from the lake Kawaguchi. It was a spectacular view I would recommend anyone to experience.
The lake is part of Fujigoko (Fuji Five Lakes). Did you know that this vulcano is the highest mountain in japan with 3.776,24m?

 

Fushimi-ku in Kyoto

It was a magical night in Kyoto, photographing torii. Torii are the traditional Japanese gates that mark the entrance to Shinto shrines. This one is at the entrance of Fushimi-ku in Kyoto, Japan.

Tilt-Shift Itsukushima Shrine

tilt-shift-itsukushima

Photographed and enhanced with tilt-shifting last year during low tide, the Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社), is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima). It is in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. The shrine complex is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Japanese government has designated several buildings and possessions as National Treasures. Every day the water floods the whole torii gate and it appears to be floating.
