When I first mentioned to friends and family that I was planning a trip to Japan, many inquired why now? In light of the ongoing nuclear crisis many people felt all Japan was unsafe.

Traveling through the country, I was able to capture some of my favorite spots while discovering many new ones. Two weeks proved not to be nearly enough time in a nation filled with notable landmarks. Regardless I was able to take thousands of shots and I thought I'd share a few here.
So here are some reminders of the beauty of Japan!
