A plant that reminds me of a tuanshan…🌿 (Apparently it’s a begonia though)

“Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers, blossoming even as we gaze.”

(Also before anyone comments I know these aren’t sunflowers lol)

Wonderful kimono styling and photography by @inkimono 💖

Me: Man, I’m never going to get a good photo of Sensōji with my phone at night.
Pagoda: Challenge accepted.

能面 🎭  You know, when you go to an art museum, you expect to see paintings and sculptures.  When you go to an aquarium, you expect to see fish and dolphins.  But for some reason, the Art Aquarium has artistic installations of fish tanks...and also Noh theatre art?? Just one display?  I don’t quite get it, but I’m not mad.  Love me some Noh masks.

I love how some Chinese temples just whip out the whole color palette.  Monochrome?  Never heard of her. 🎨

One of the things I’ve always marveled about in Japan is how you’re hardly ever more than a stone’s throw from a Shinto shrine.  As Shintoism is a polytheistic animist belief system, you can find shrines almost anywhere—some are big, some small, some popular, some nearly deserted.  Sometimes when I find a shrine in the middle of nowhere I can’t help but wonder why it was built.  What occurred for people to mark this tree as sacred?  Which spirit was worshipped at this spring?  How long have these offerings been left there, and how often do people still come to pray?  Why do I think so philosophically about shrines? 😂  Many shrines can become wild and overgrown if not tended to, but I think I prefer them that way—somehow it seems fitting that these places built to honor nature would be so entwined with it.  Even the torii gate behind me, surrounded by wild grass, wreathed with a worn shimenawa, peeling with age, felt more to me like the Japan I lived in than the magnificent torii of Meiji Jingu did.  I’m thankful to have this photo to remind me of that...and to still have my eyesight after frying my retinas while looking dramatically into the distance.

Wonderful photography and kimono styling @inkimono 💖

“Then something Tookish woke up inside him, and he wished to go and see the great mountains, and hear the pine-trees and the waterfalls, and explore the caves, and wear a sword instead of a walking-stick.” And boy, if there were ever anything to wake up a sense of adventure in me, it just might have to be the sight of Kegon Falls cascading 97 meters (318 feet) down from Lake Chūzenji.  Shoutout to @elange15 for suggesting we go!!

It’s been a longtime dream of mine to wear kimono, and when I finally got that chance I couldn’t have asked for a more magical experience.  What a wonderful memory to have made before returning home 🍃👘 Endless thanks to @inkimono for the styling, photoshoot, and kimono lecture; I hope I can come back for another shoot in the future!

(Also, prepare for this to be the first of several kimono photos 😂)
