Japan for someone may be associated with the incessant noise
of the crowded Tokyo magapolis, blinking lights of advertisement
or numerous buddhist temples or shinto shrines.
I have seen Japan a little bit different.
Of course, you cannot escape volcanos, like Iwate-san at the north of Honsu:
|Although when you get closer, they look a little bit different:|
|But there are no so many volcanos. Mountains are old, covered by forest where nobody lives. In general, I found Japan a rather deserted country, especially the northern part.|
|Alas, when we cast a glance back, we see only ruins...|
|Majority of rivers, even small ones, are constrained by dams, although sometimes they are allowed to flow freely:|
|In mountains, bamboo is not developing in a tree, but becomes a small and nasty bush saseyaba. To go through a dense thicket of this wonderful plant is an ordeal which too few dare to undertake.|
|A holy place in the forest.|
|A path to the temple.|
|But at the end of that path...|
|The southeast part of Japan, Yaeyama islands, look somewhat different than the northern part of Honsu:|
