Spring in Japan

We'll be back in Japan one month from now so it's probably a good time to finally post the photos from our most recent visit last Spring. This time around, my brother, Mark, and our friend, Brian, joined us as we traveled to new and familiar places. We based ourselves in Nagoya to start and had our first AirBnb experience (which we highly recommend and have almost booked exclusively through them for this upcoming trip) and hopped the train to Osaka, Tottori, and the surrounding rural communities. We then made our way to the all-time favourite, Izu peninsula, and went north to Nikko before ending in Tokyo.

David also made the commitment of shooting only on the Mamiya RZ67, which we affectionately named The Toaster for its size and sounds. This was the first real test of this camera and the results exceeded well beyond our expectations. The remainder of our photos are shot with a Nikon D800.
