Nakimushiyama Trail

Last Saturday when it was supposed to be cloudly with snow and -5 Celsius at the most. They got the temperature right.


A rare sight in Tokyo.

A kiss goodnight

Fujisan can't often be seen from Tokyo, but on clear winter days it occasionally makes an appearance. On a spring-like Valentines Day, it became visible just before sunset.

Taken with a Nikon D300/Tamron 200-500mm (@500mm) from Tamagawadai Park, Tokyo.

Orion, the Hunter

On a cold, windy night (for Tokyo) under a nearly full moon along the Tamagawa (Tama River). The lack of 4 real seasons in Tokyo makes cold, numb, fingers a rare, and pleasurable experience. One can even occasionally see stars, but that night the "cold" was the reason for going.
