Japan Time-lapse

I recently returned from the beautiful country of Japan. This is the first of two videos I shot while out there. The time-lapse is made up of 4000 photographs.

Japan Diary: Day 023 & 024 (Our Last Day)

Day 023 & 024  Tokyo & Flying Home  Our flight home to England (via Dubai) was at 9pm so we planned to spend the day with our friend Shiori, as she lives in Tokyo it was a sure thing we would find where and how to get the train for the airport. Our last day…

Japan Diary: Day 022

Day 022: Tokyo I am writing this tipsy and tired after toasting our last night in Tokyo. So apologies in advance. We woke up on our last full day here in Japan to rain. We thought this might hopefully make it easier to leave but somehow I doubt it. We got ourselves ready in the…

Japan Diary: Day 021

Day 021: Tokyo Today we began by waving off our new friends Eddy and Eric as they left to make their way to Mt.Fuji. And with Juna bandaging her blister up using one too many plasters making it look like a dramatic war wound we were ready to go. We first returned to Ueno park,…

Japan Diary: Day 020

Day 020: Akihabara & Asakusa The 20th day of our travels started at 7.30am with my feet sticking out the end of the ridiculously short duvet and the fire alarm going off. I guess thankfully it was a false alarm but I couldn’t get back to sleep. The first place we visited was Akihabara, known…

Japan Diary: Day 019

Day 019 Hiroshima & Tokyo  Sadly this morning we were checking out of our nicest hostel yet; with comfy beds, a modern common room/kitchen and 10 showers which were as nice as any hotel. On our way down in the lift from the 6th floor, where we had been staying, an American student jumped in…

Japan Diary: Day 018

Day 018: Hiroshima  After a long day yesterday we decided to take it slow on our last day here in Hiroshima. After a lovely lie-in till 11, I managed to convince Juna to visit an incinerator plant on the outskirts of Hiroshima. I had heard about the plant a while back as it’s designed by…

Japan Diary: Day 017

Day 017: Hiroshima Last night we decided to use today to see all the memorial sites and museums and then see how we felt, and decide what we want to do afterwards. We first visited the famous A-dome, just 5 minutes walk from our hostel. The Dome was what I had seen on TV. but…

Japan Diary: Day 016

Day 016: Kyoto & Hiroshima  This morning we woke up bright and early to catch our train to Hiroshima. The train station is a 40 minute, warm bus journey from our hostel,but just as we were about to leave and head to the bus stop the manager of the hostel knocked at our door. Not…

Japan Diary: Day 015

Day 015: Kyoto Day 15 started off hilariously. Around 10 am when I was attempting to get out of bed (10 is early for me) Juna returned from having a shower. Although I noticed something weird, her towel was still in our room. It transpires she forgot her towel and after washing her hair just…

Japan Diary: Day 014

Day 014: Arashiyama  Today we treated ourselves to breakfast at a doughnut restaurant. We have resisted since we touched down in Japan. But today I had two doughnuts for breakfast and it was glorious. Although a bit sickly I quickly polished off a chocolate doughnut swiftly followed by one completely filled with whipped cream. To…

Japan Diary: Day 013

Day 013: Kyoto We decided to start our first full day in Kyoto by going out for breakfast. Round the corner from our hostel we found a bustling Japanese cafe. When we were seated we were shown a button in the middle of the table, when your ready to order or need help you just…
