A Snapshot of Japan Part 4 – The Tourist Spots

Of course, when you venture to a faraway land with camera in hand, the first thoughts are to visit the main attractions and get the proverbial “record shots”. You know what I mean, the touristy shots, and Japan is full of them. As I mentioned in Part 1 of the series, the busloads of tourists start arriving by 9.00am so it’s a matter of getting to a popular location early if you want people free photographs.

Here are few of the iconic locations that we visited where we managed to get a half decent shot, many of them you may recognise from travel brochures and the like.

I hope you have enjoyed the 4 part series as much as I have enjoyed putting together a handful of the 3,000 photographs taken during our visit to this fascinating land. We only touched on a few locations, mostly in the major cities, and a visit to the northern regions and more rural locations would create a totally different impression.
