Favorite Photos from Japan Trip

March/April 2017

Here are my 300 best pictures from our visit to Japan, where we toured Kyoto and Tokyo, and hiked a portion of the Nakasendo Way, the historic imperial highway that once linked the old capital (Kyoto) to the new capital (Tokyo). The picture below shows us in the Ryoan-ji Temple, a zen temple in Kyoto.

I wrote a haiku to celebrate our Nakasendo Way journey:
