    Hi Yobbo,

    Awesome images. I was there a few years ago with the family, we were in Shinjuku (Tokyo), Kyoto and saw the Hiroshima Peace Memorial.

    Nice pix. I used to live in Japan (Yokohama) years ago. Since 2008 I go back two times per year for two months each time. I've been to all these place that you've took pictures of. The picture of the Tokyo Tower, you can barely see in the background the ferris wheel with the Cosmo clock in the center of it. That area was my main hangout when I lived there. I also used to go to Kyoto and Osaka every visit via the Shinkansen. That Tokyo Sky Tree is a pretty amazing structure too. One of main things I do while there is to visit as many temples and shrines as possible. I could spend an entire week in just Kamakura visiting all of the temples and shrines there. Nice picture of Fujisan too. Next time I go I'll have to climb it again. Haven't done that since I lived there.
