Hazy, golden Japan days...

Japan, August.

There is something quite otherworldly about Japanese summer, a kind of hypnotic humidity. This wander, while waiting to meet a friend, made me remember my first month when I lived in Japan a few years ago. 
The humidity felt like a cloak over me and I sometimes felt as if I was swimming through it as I wobbled along on my bicycle. It just seemed to smell of sultry golds and greens in the early mornings [probably before I remembered how hot I was...!}

During my rural commute, the heat went from unbearable to a dreamy solitude and I loved remembering it again in the middle of Tokyo.


  1. I can't wait to get there - you're shots have me dreaming of vacations!

  2. and even with the heat, these lovely scenes surely made them turn into golden moments that are worth to cherish.

  3. The hazy humidity you've captured perfectly. It really sets a mood for you photos.
