Photography & Adventure: Shikoku

Shikoku is probably my favourite place in Japan. It’s the first place I lived permanently in Japan, it’s fantastic for cycling, the people are wonderful, it’s home to the best festival I’ve ever been too, which I went to again this year, but I worry.

What happened in Tohoku in 2011 is predicted to happen again. In fact it is predicted for the whole Pacific Coast of Japan, including Shima and Minami Ise which I visited recently.

Despite the paranoia it’s a place I can’t imagine not revisiting again and again and one day moving back to.

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.

  1. These shots are all beautiful. I especially love the first one and the second one — the human labour in these shots set in relationship to the other landscape shots, really works for me. The sunset shot is obviously beautiful as well. Provia?
