We took the bullet train from Tokyo to Gero. I have always loved trains ever since I was a kid, I have a tattoo of a train engine on my stomach and I painted and hopped trains when I was younger. This diptych was taken at over 120mph, I couldn’t stop smiling the entire ride, trains definitely bring out the kid in me.
Rented bikes for the day in Kyoto, rode for an hour to a vegan spot across town and shot a few pix on the way. Sometimes I wonder if strict formalist photography still has a place in this world.

The big pool at Takaragawa Onsen, had to get up at 5am to take this photo cuz they don’t allow photography in the open air pools.
This is Yunoshimakan, the ryokan we stayed at in Gero. I can honestly say this is the coolest hotel I have ever stayed at in my entire life. The entire building is a maze with tons of secret hiding spots, I got lost about 10 times trying to get back to my room and loved every second of it.
Walking around Gero in the Gifu prefecture I came across this very Western looking building with a giant empty parking lot. Reminded me of old skate/drinking spots in SoCal.
