Kegon Falls (華厳滝) seen from the base at Chūgūshi City in Nikkō-shi. We took the elevator (華厳滝エレベーター) a 100 meters down and shot these pictures from the observation deck. #KegonFalls, #華厳滝, #LakeChuzenji, #中禅寺湖, #Nikko, #日光, #TochigiPrefecture, #栃木県, #waterfall, #Japan, #AkechidairaRopeway, #明智平ロープウェイ

Kegon Falls (華厳滝) seen from the upper observation deck in Oku Nikkō (奥日光). In three minutes, the ropeway takes you to the deck. You have a view of the Kegon Falls (華厳滝), Lake Chūzenji (中禅寺湖) and Mount Nantai (男体山). #KegonFalls, #華厳滝, #LakeChuzenji, #中禅寺湖, #Nikko, #日光, #TochigiPrefecture, #栃木県, #waterfall, #Japan, #AkechidairaRopeway, #明智平ロープウェイ

Today (May 15-2017), the annual Aoi Matsuri (葵祭), paraded through the streets of Kyoto. It commences at the Imperial Palace going towards the Shimogamo shrine. Some rituals take place here and everyone gets a little rest and lunch. From here the Aoi Matsuri (葵祭) walks to the Kamigamo shrine, the final stop of this event.
Before reaching Kamigamo shrine, they walk along the Kamo River. I believe this road is called Kamo Kaido. The good news about this spot though, no traffic and green trees on both sides. Ideal for shooting pics and video. #AoiMatsuri, #葵祭, #Kyoto, #SaiōDai, #斎王代, #ShimogamoShrine, #下鴨神社, #KamigamoShrine, #上賀茂神社,

Himeji Castle Matsuri; Dating Back To 1346, Hyōgo-ken, Japan.

Yesterday, I went to Himeji City to attend the annual “Himeji Oshiro Matsuri (姫路お城)”. There was a festive mood around the famous “White Heron Castle”, The castle was founded in 1333, when a fort was constructed on Himeyama hill by Akamatsu Norimura (赤松 則村, 1277 - February 18, 1350), the ruler of the ancient Harima Province.
Here are some of the pictures I took, enjoy! #HimejiCastle, #姫路城, #白鷺城, #HimejiOshiroMatsuri, #姫路お城まつり, #Hyōgo, #兵庫県,

The pathway to the Hondō (本堂) of Yata-dera (矢田寺) flanked by colourfull Hydrangea bushes (ajisai-紫陽花) in Yamato Koriyama, Nara Prefecture. I was here last year in June, a bit of the beaten track, but if you like Hydrangea flowers, it’s a paradise. #Hydrangea, #紫陽花, #Yatadera, #矢田寺, #Nara, #ajisai, #flowers, #countryside
