Giant flowers, the V sign, $50 boxes of strawberries, a statue to a dog, … some are few of the many oddities that jumps to the eyes of a stranger. But guess what, we love them, Japan is absolutely wonderful.  (click on pictures for high res)

All pictures taken with Leica M8 and 35mm Lux Asph

  3. Everyone who’s been to Japan tells the same story, that it’s very different, socially, culturally, the cities etc.
