Faces of Japan


I’m delighted to continue on with my ‘Faces of’ series and take you to Japan. These photos all come from my first visit in April 2011. Still in some ways feels like yesterday. Hope you enjoy.at karaoke tokyo

Final night before flying off I went to a karaoke bar and had an utter blast in Roppongi. Met some lovely people too.baby kyoto

Despite not being able to read Japanese, I was moved somehow by a series of ‘missing persons’ flyers on my first day in Japan – Kyoto.

    I think I’d probably feel a bit moved seeing the missing person’s posters, perhaps even more so when you can’t understand the text it gives you more to reflect on. What a little sweetheart at the bus depot 🙂
