A brief introduction to our Japanese trip 2018 #Japan #Photography #HenniPhoto

We took a lot of photos on our 4 week trip across Japan so there will be a few blog posts to follow once we catch up with our processing.

We started in Tokyo and after a day trip to Nikko Park, we headed to Jigokudani (Hell’s Valley) in the Japanese alps to see the snow monkeys.  From there we travelled to Matsumoto before joining the ancient Nakasendo hiking trail, walking from Nagiso to Otsumago ending at Magome. We then continued by train to Takayama then Kanazawa and then Hiroshima.  From there we went to Kyoto before travelling up Mount Koya and then ending with a few days in Osaka.  Our itinerary mostly comprised places of which we knew little or nothing – and unless you’ve been there, you may feel the same.  We hope that our blog posts and photos will help to bring these wonderful places alive – it will certainly indulge us as we relive that incredible month.

So, starting with Tokyo.  We arrived, tired after our long flight but excited to explore.  The drive to our hotel in the Tokyo bay area took us past some interesting architecture

and the view up the the river from our hotel was pretty impressive.

We loved the skyscrapers and high towers

but we also loved the contrasts of old and new for instance at Hamarikyu Gardens

and indeed, the narrow old streets of Golden Gai

and restaurants down dark alleys.

Walking about at night, the street scenes

and  huge adverts reminded us of scenes from Bladerunner.

Perhaps this is what inspired Paul’s double exposure shots

He was also fascinated by the sculptural fire-escapes and their shadows

while Lynn’s attention was drawn to the lights.

We had a mix of weather over the trip including some rain in Tokyo allowing a few umbrella shots.

Once again, a big thanks again to our fine hosts The Roamin’ Nose.  It’s #healthkick time at the ‘Nose, so why not get along and try one of their healthy options such as a warm salad with Beetroot, roast baby parsnips, asparagus, artichokes, lentils & goats cheese? Cold? – there’s home made hot soup and it’s tasty. I know, because I test it out on your behalf on a regular basis.

Not fancying something healthy? There’s Barney’s beer, a great selection of moderately priced wines and cocktails. All god for washing down some home made pasta – my favourite when not tempted by a Roamin’ Burger, which is a proper one and gob-smackingly good too.

After eating and drinking, why not buy that nice print you have fancied, but not yet nabbed, before it disappears. It might even be one of those on offer?

As a reminder, Four Reflect is four local photographers presenting a range of images for sale. Open within the Roamin’ Nose Café and Bistro from the 13th November 2014, this exhibition will run until the 11th of February. More details on  the exhibition web page. Buy stuff off the  walls!

And here’s the exhibition flyer:

Four Reflect Exhibition: Now Refreshed & Renewed With New Images

We’ve now sold about half of the available Framed Frints, so have added some fresh stuff for your perusal.

As before,  big thanks again to The Roamin’ Nose, to Todd at B-Scenic for lending a professional air to proceedings and to all those who have bought something. More importantly – it’s cocktail season at the ‘Nose, so why not get along and try one:

Hazlenut Espresso Martini – best drunk at about 11:30am apparently, so an ideal pick-me-up after that Christmas Party. Mmm, French Toast and a Hazlenut Espresso Martini please I can hear you cry!

Fruits Of The Forest – It’s got fruit in it so it must be good for you at this time of year. Berries, Vodka, Ginger Ale.

Cointreau Coffee – Err, well, Cointreau and Coffee. You’ll love it.

All tested personally by the RN’s own Lucy and approved for drinking before buying that nice print you fancy giving Auntie Agnes (other friends and relatives can be nominated) for Christmas…

An Update – Now we’re up and running and have sold some prints, I thought I’d stick up some shots of the venue and how it looks when you let random photographers loose on your walls. Big thanks again to the RN and to Todd at B-Scenic for lending a professional air to proceedings.
