Torii.
Somewhere kind of happy that I had the chance to experience a stroll through Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s reflective installation of The Gates in NYC nearly a decade ago, before walking through the source of the inspiration in Kyoto. It gave me the unique sensation of being in both places at once | April 7, 2014

Sakura.
Somewhere knowing that it’s not possible to communicate the beauty of the Cherry Blossoms along Philosipher’s Path in Kyoto in Black and White, but thinking that maybe you should just go see them for yourself | April 8, 2014

Transfer of Power.
Somewhere at the Fushimi-Inari station in Kyoto, headed to the other side of the tracks | April 7, 2014

Stay Curious.
Somewhere making new friends on the Keihan Line as I made my way to Fushimi Inari Taisha. I didn’t think I would enjoy myself because it is such a major tourist destination, but this dude helped changed my perspective | April 7, 2014

Dangan Ressha (弾丸列車).
Somewhere hopeful that contracts and policy one day give way to innovation that will bring high speed rail to the US… because it’s friggin’ awesome! Shinkansen forever | April 7, 2014

Wide Angle.
Somewhere having enjoyed an enlightening visit with @karlthefog | April 11, 2014 (at Friday Nights @ The De Young)

Somewhere enjoying the peace and tranquility of Kyoto, even in its busiest season | April 8, 2014 (at 伏見稲荷駅 (Fushimi-Inari Sta.))

Gion.
Somewhere in a district built for tourists, feeling like a local. If you ever find yourself in Kyoto, be sure to grab a meal at Otooshi. Everything on the menu is 390¥ and everything on the menu was deliciousness. Fortunately for us all, they do not serve crane, or this scene a block north of the restaurant would not have happened | April 8, 2014

50/50.
Somewhere with the odds stacked in my favor | April 6, 2014 (at 渋谷駅 (Shibuya Sta.))

Ramen Posture.
Somewhere at the best vegetarian restaurant in Central Tokyo assuming the position | April 6, 2014 (at 東京駅 (Tokyo Sta.))
