Limited Edition Prints available from my trip to Japan:

This is a short travel video of my 2 1/2 week trip around Japan in late November 2016. Japan is an amazing country with a unique coexistence between the old and the new that sometimes boggles the mind of a foreigner. At its heart lies a beautiful country, filled with generous and polite people always willing to help a lost stranger with map reading issues.

During my brief visit, i passed through Tokyo, Shirahama, Kumano Kodo, Koya San, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and some strange and wonderful places in between. I hope you enjoy the video i’ve made of this little journey and many thanks to all the people i met along the way!

    Stumbled across this video while searching for A7r III footage and I have to say. The visuals, the transitions, the music all fit together perfectly. I feel like I've gained an insight into the culture through your eyes. Thank you for this!

Some of our videos get millions of views. We will of course credit you, would you be happy to give us permission to do this?
