After a small technical glitch I have finally downloaded my Japan photos and have included a little peek at Japan in this post along with a small smattering of my travel outfits .I plan to post some more in depth in the form of mid week posts for anyone interested. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse through my eyes of the beauty and quirkiness of Japan.
I was thrilled to catch the beauty and celebration of the blooming of the cherry blossoms in Tokyo.
I sneaked this shot of this young couple in their traditional costumes while their professional photographer was setting up, they looked just so lovely I couldn't resist.
I was rather pleased with how my travel wardrobe worked out and I wore every single item in my
suitcase, most on high rotation, simply ringing the changes with hats, gloves , scarves , sunnies and jewellery. I may well be a convert to only travelling with carry on luggage, getting on and off trains was a breeze .
Sometimes a little red was needed to brighten the black , as you can see it was somewhat cool so my
old faithful Paula Ryan bronze jacket had lots of wear. This shot was taken in the Arashiyama Bamboo Forest in Kyoto .
A random selection of shots showing the many delights that Japan has to offer from the traditional
to the cutesy bunnies I spotted in Tokyo, every city should use these you can''t but smile.
Black with black and white in Miyajima with the Itsukushima Shrine (also known as the Floating Torii Gate) in the background.
Kinku_ji (Golden Temple ) in Kyoto really is a breathtaking sight. Kyoto was once the imperial capital of Japan and is home to 1100 temples and some of the most beautiful gardens I have ever seen, it truly would have to be one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.
This stunning display of quintessential Japanese elements was in our hotel lobby in Kyoto.
