At the Musee Rodin in Paris. I loved the way the girls were symmetrical with the vine arches and the museum itself. (Paris has a way of making simple things look good.)
I took this photo at Mikuni beach, a Japanese beach famous for its sunsets. My friend Martin is wearing a kid’s plastic crown, and when looking at this shot I always think of him as the King of Mikuni.
In Japan, fireworks are a famous tradition during the Obon Festival in August. In the Obon festival, Japanese families spend time together and honor their ancestors. This is a shot of a young boy standing in excitement during the fireworks festival in my small town.
Taken on a rainy evening at the Eiheiji Lantern festival, in Eiheiji, Fukui, Japan. I loved the symmetry of the umbrellas and the dragon.
A statue framed by sunlit leaves outside the famous zazen Buddhist temple, the Eiheiji Temple.
Got lucky to catch this shot of three women in kimono on a swing, in Kyoto, Japan. I think the playfulness of the women charmingly juxtaposes the seriousness of traditional Japanese culture.
Sunlight streaming through giant bamboo trees in Arashiyama, Kyoto’s famous bamboo forest.
Office workers, called ‘salary men,’ going to or from the office on a Saturday night in Tokyo.
A sightseeing telescope in Nagoya Castle (Nagoya, Japan). I thought it looked like it was observing its city, just like all the tourists around it. It also reminded me of Wall-E in a sad robot kind of way.
My friend Sarah’s face perfectly captures how I think we were all feeling on our first night in Tokyo! The map looming over her also does a good job of emphasizing how busy and massive Tokyo is. Taken in Shinjuku Station, one of the busiest subway stations in Tokyo.
My baby host sister, Ryo-chan, caught red-handed enjoying some crab. Family dinners with the Tsuji family are some of my favorite memories here in Japan!
A giant pot of nabe (pronounced nah-bey), traditional Japanese winter stew, prepared beautifully by my Japanese friend Eri.
