I am lucky enough to have monthly assignments with a Tokyo based client that works closely with some of Japan’s biggest inbound tourism and travel companies. This means I often get the opportunity to travel the length and breadth of the country photographing a variety of things including local cuisines, local industries, historic sites and of course popular tourist destinations. In many ways this has been my dream job for a long, long time.
I am extremely grateful to have such interesting, fun and inspiring work assignments on a regular basis. On each and every trip I learn something new about the rich culture of my adopted home, the language and the deep history of the various areas that make up Japan. I also get to see some amazing places that I wouldn’t have the faintest idea about otherwise.
I have decided to start posting my top five favourite images from each of these assignments here on my website to show you what kind of work I am doing and also to hopefully inspire others to get out and explore this wonderful country.
This time my trip was to the towns of Shima Onsen and Kusatsu Onsen, both in Gunma prefecture. Both of the towns are famous for their abundance of natural hot springs. Here are my personal five favourite images from the assignment.
Also, don’t forget to follow my Instagram for more images from this trip and many others! Thanks!
