In 2010 I lived in Tokyo for three months and then traveled around Japan for three weeks in 2011 right after New Year's Eve.

This post will be updated along the way as I go through the photos in post process.

Feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

All images can be clicked for larger versions at deviantART which has more info on each photo.

Enjoy.

Thanks a lot mbrandste!

That is also one of my personal favorites along with the Shibuya Station and the Gratis Barn (Free Child).

For those wondering which India collenction being referred to, click the red pat of this sentence (shameless self promotion, I know, but don't we all like to be noticed once in a while?)

Love the set. The katana dojo one kinda stuck out from the rest in it's old fashioned setting. Even the bike looks old. Liked the escalator photo, too. Never would have thought of doing that.

I went on a vacation with a friend there in 2002. I had an entry level Rebel 2000 with a couple kits lenses. I must've took 13-14 rolls in 9 days, but there's alot to see there. I took a decent photo of the Golden Pavillion which I blew up to 30".

Thanks lagnificent! That was a lot of film for 9 days. I am happy that I had a digital camera there as I would have been broke quite soon with a film camera. I came home with many thousands of shots from life in Japan but I will only post the ones that appeal to me aesthetically or otherwise stand out to me.

I have added 22 new photos to this collection.

The escalators are also very nice. I like images with high symmetry :)

Col pics, very interesting additions to your escalator suite.

I remember some temple that was overran with deer, much like the place you took photos of. They handed out food to tourists to feed the deer. My friend is known as someone who is always late. When we got on our tour bus to leave "deer temple", he didn't show up at first. Naturally, I got frustrated about it. Eventually, he turned up and apologized because a deer thought his passport was food and stole it from his pocket. He had to chase down that deer. :lol:

Is that weird building from Osaka? I remember some weird building with a hole it.

@mbrandste: Thanks a lot! Me too.

@lagnificent: Thank you! Luckily, I didn't get anything taken by a deer as we were warn against their kleptomania. The temple is Todai-ji in Nara. The building with the hole is indeed in Osaka. It's the Floating Garden Observatory.

@eVolutioN: Thank you very much. I like to photograph different things so I don't just get stuck with one thing and get rusty with the rest.
