about this work
More on this piece:
I wish I had more time to see Japan but reality limits allowed me one other city to visit besides Tokyo...and that city was Kyoto because of it's plethora of traditional temples.
After arriving in Japan after my time in Korea I headed directly to Kyoto from Narita Airport. I can confirm that Japanese trains are as cool and as fast as they say (video of my bullet train trip 1 & 2 ).
In all during my stay in Kyoto I say 3 Temples, 1 palace, and one Fortress ...all incredibly beautiful! It was however the last one that I saw; the To-ji Temple that I wanted to capture as a nearby crosswalk bridge offered a great duality view of old (temples) and new (modern street activity and buildings) Japan
