Images of Japan at night (mostly)

Some photos of Nagano, Obuse, Matsushiro, and Takayama…

 

In front of Zenkoji temple in Nagano

 These are of a procession in Nagano, going between a small temple and the enormous Zenkoji, which takes place at night for a few weeks each year

 Takayama 

 Fire buckets are everywhere in Japan, usually red, but these must be faded 

 Obuse is known for its chestnuts.  The town has footpaths paved with blocks of chestnut tree wood

  1. Robert: I especially liked the image labeled “E.jpg”. Is this your f/1.6 lens? what was the mm? I always enjoy your night shots…

  2. No, it’s a new, small, travel P&S with a short telephoto zoom and variable, but controllable, aperture. Fits in my pocket.
