Stuck in Rice Fields.

Roads still sodden after all the rain, which did make everything beautifully green.  Film crew working very hard.

五円 For Luck

Tying five yen coins to the tassel of a shrine bell, used to call on the gods before praying.

Japanese Cuisine

Such attention to detail and a lot of work involved.  This is wheat protein with green beans, carrot and seaweed.  Tasted much better than it sounds, I promise.

Yamabushi - Mountain Ascetic

Went to be filmed having a Yamabushi training experience at Haguro-San (Black Feather Mountain).  It rained and rained and rained, which somehow made it all the more the better.  Was fun being part of a t.v. programme.

Morning View

I need more morning coffees like this one.  Silence with mountains.

Mountain Retreat

Being in the mountains, surrounded by nature, drinking spring water - nothing better for body and soul.

Photo Driving

I know it's bad to take photos while driving, but I emerged from a very long tunnel to this welcoming view of sun beams - a long drive and this was the end.

Photo Panel

Displayed this at my friends event, and made my day that someone wanted it!  Title - Wet Summer's Day in London. Ha ha ha!

Sushi - My style.


I'm not too fond of raw fish, but I do love going to Sushi restaurants.  Tuna-mayo roll, okra, mountain potato and egg.  So so good!
