How beautiful! I must visit Japan one day.
Love your colors. I hope I got the right entry. I clicked on your blog for Mornings With Mary at Rebecca's site. Maybe these are Marys in the abstract.
Wonderful photos. We were stationed for three years in Japan (by we, I mean my husband was stationed there and we went along for the ride). It was an interesting experience. I wish we could've gone when our girls were older. Thanks for sharing your photos. Found you on the Create with Joy linky.
I've been there, many years ago when my dad was stationed in Misawa, Japan and we took a train to the festival. Loved that festival.
Lovely pictures .. can't wait to see the place at the end of this year.
oh so beautiful the view!
Wow, lovely pictures. I always loved the look of those Japanese buildings.
A great B&W contribution!
Beautiful building. It really stands out in black and white.
Love the curves on the structure. And the blossoms are magical.
Are those cherry blossoms in the last photo?
How gorgeous! And lucky you, getting to visit this beautiful place during cherry blossom season. I bet it was so gorgeous in person!Amy | Club Narwhal
