Shirakawa-go // Japan

 

It has been a whirlwind since I last posted, and I have all sorts of fantastic things to share. After gallivanting around Japan for the month of August, we jetted off to Indonesia to celebrate my big bad 30th birthday with my twin and her boyfriend, and now Adam and I are setting up life in Copenhagen. The new post-PhD jobs start next week!

Anyhow, back to the pictures. After Tokyo, we hopped into a camper van and hit the road. Shirakawa-go was just one of the many stops along the way, but it was one of my favs for pictures. There isn't much to it to be honest, but it is still quite nice to walk around for an hour or so. It is basically an old historic village made up of a bundle of traditional houses that are perched between vivid rice fields and beautiful mountainsides. To add to the authenticity of our experience, we got naked with strangers at the local onsen. Gotta love that.
