    What an interesting life you are leading! I love your photography and the first thing I noticed is the “mood” incorporated into it by a greater darkness than typical, which enriches the scene.

    I love Japan also. I was an exchange college student to Osaka in 1974-5 and my point of view was never the same after that. I have friends in Japan and cannot wait to return a 4th time!

    I enjoy photography but I am a simple photo-taker. Do you have any tours for just lovers of Japan that want to capture beauty mostly with their eyes? By the way, I have a Nikon and its weight makes me leave it stored when I travel.

    Count me in for Japan again! Please send information about your tours.

    Thank you!

      Hi Stephanie and thanks a lot for your comment, I really appreciate it! It gives me more motivation to continue!
      If you come to Japan, keep me in touch.

      I lead workshops in Japan and try to cover all the seasons in different locations and I would be super glad if you want to join one of them!
      I completely understand your feeling, it was the same for me. Before I was coming I had a “typical image” of japan and since I live here this image completely change.

      I wish you a happy new year 2021, hoping you can travel soon around the world and in Japan.

      Stay safe and take care

    Great article and beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing your story, Nicolas. My wife and I live in Berlin but spent a few weeks I Japan in 2019 and had plans for another trip there last year but that obviously didn’t work out. There’s never a day when we’re not thinking or talking about our time there. It’s such a wonderful country and the thought of being back, with my camera in my hand, brings a smile to my face.

    As soon as it’s safe to do so, we’ll be back. Have a nice day and take care.
