After a week in bed with a stomach flu, I'm back in Vancouver and back to posting photos from #jlxasia17. I hope you're ready; there's still much to cover.
.
This #bmwisetta was parked alongside a row of cherry blossoms in #himeji. I was trying to line up a shot when this equally tiny lady came along. .
She was so thrilled by the car and my fascination with it. She started chattering to me excitedly - mecha pecha kucha - but I couldn't keep up. When she learned I was a tourist, she only went faster. And when the driver popped the roof and stood straight up? Oh man. She went full blast ... and for some reason, a guy in a full-body, red spandex showed up? Probably the #japanese version of the Flash because the rest of us weren't keeping up.

This girl stole the show from the entire #mikoshi #procession. That smile, perfectly practiced and practically permanent. Way too charming.

Chasing #sakura had me on a strict schedule, leaving little room for some #japanese staples, like #mtfuji. As luck would have it, my flight out passed right over the range, clouds parted and all. .
Just the night before, I had a hunch something was waiting for me, so I changed my reservation to a window seat. What an exemplary way to end this trip. .
Truly, so many great things happened in Japan. So much serendipitous happenstance. So many wonderful new friends. So much growing, inside and in waist size. Mostly waist size. .
I think it's to Japan's credit that someone with little command of the language can explore the entire country. The infrastructure is unparalleled, but really, its the hospitality of the people that makes this place go.
.
So on that note, thank you to all of the friends and gracious hosts I met this past month! I had so much fun and grew so much because of you. Please come visit Vancouver, but come quickly; I might be back in Japan soon. .

A polite photo scrum turned into a game of leapfrog. One person moved up, and all of a sudden ....

In #Takayama, in the site of the old castle ruins, speakers are hidden in the trees and they're -everywhere-. At 6PM, a song plays, marking the end of the day. The sound was enveloping and I had no idea where it was coming from. When I heard it, I thought I'd gone crazy or died. Surreal. Incredibly Japanese. Actually quite frightening. On the way down, I ran into these two lovely folks who were just as perplexed. A night of trading stories and photos ensued. Serendipity is truly the theme of this trip, or as someone later that night described it, focusing. Everything's fallen into place with a little trust this trip. I need to keep this mentality forever. .

#sannomatsuri has been wonderful, and there's lots of it coming, but I want to start this series by talking about with how great the light is in #takayama. Also, #nightmarket!

Off to #Takayama to celebrate the ever-popular #sannomatsuri. With rain set for the second day, the only way to see everything was to arrive this morning; I think everyone else thought the same.

I spend inordinate amounts of time waiting for photos. The light needs to be at the right angle ... someone needs to be standing on the bridge ... a lens flare needs to point to the subject ... I need some light on a foreground element... it's a lot. I'll circle and ponder and try a dozen test shots, prepping for the moment. When it's finally time to pull the trigger, a crowd always shows up, leans in on me, and budges me out of position. Aiyah. Silly.
Still, what a stunning garden.

And to think I was going to leave #Nagoya early. #Yamazakigawa #river  was exactly the #hanami experience I wanted. Tranquil. Expansive. Petals swirling about in the wind. So grateful I didn't bounce.

This fever's really thrown me off, but I couldn't let the last of #hanami pass me by. Even gentle breezes were stripping the trees of their petals. Here's hoping Nagoya still has flowers after all of this rain. .
