A Trip to Japan


Here are some pictures from a week-long trip to Japan in October, 2005.  After that, we returned to Taiwan for another week before returning home. Primarily a work trip, I managed to get out for a few pictures mostly in Tokyo and surrounding areas, including Kamakura and Nikko, and a visit to Rokkasho-mura in northern Honshu.  Most of the pictures below are from Kamakura, a short train ride from Tokyo.

All pictures were taken with a 4 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ10 and cleaned up with Paintshop Pro.
