Random black and white photos

I wanted to enter some photography competition. But got bored and did not do so. Instead of the desktop, I thought I will put it here.

A visit to Japan

      1. Book the tickets in advance, maybe 8 or 10 months in advance
2. Practice walking, at least 8 km!!
3. Want to experience bullet train? Take JR pass from your country.
4. Take minimum luggage.
5. Make a flexible itinerary- don’t be sad if you miss a place, happy to see whatever is available.                         Rain is unpredictable
6. If you are taking a kid- I have to write another blog for that.
7. Vegetarian? Carry the food.
8. Take yen and enjoy shopping.
9. Don’t get busy in visiting tourists places, just take a random train and travel around, observe people, Japanese design, perfectionism.
10. Do visit  the washroom in all possible places, in many places they are unique and you will marvel about the cleanliness.
11. Ask for help and observe how much trouble Japanese take to explain you.
12. Walk around the cities.
13. Try roadside food.
14. Take camera along with phone to take photo!! You will be surprised to see even 80-year-old carry around full frame camera!!
