Photography: Modern Japan

I’ve just finished reading Modern Japan: A Very Short Introduction in which the author, Christopher Goto-Jones, concludes that Japan is still struggling to find a balance between its cultural heritage and the demands of the modern world, a conclusion that is never more apparent than during spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom


Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.
