I was on my way to Osaka this day and purposely chose to avoid using the shinkansen.
This was one of the quieter stretches of the Nakasendo/Kiso-ji so far — a ‘get it done’ section. In autumn last year I walked from Kiso Fukushima to Agematsu, and by reaching Kiso Fukushima this time have now walked from Shiojiri to Agematsu.
It rained hard the day before so hiking on muddy and slippery mountain trails was out of the question, especially with a young daughter in tow.
Back in 2010 I started seanbreslin.net. It was pre-earthquake/Fukushima Japan and I was hooked on photography more than anything else.
