A Quiet Japan Trip

Finding less crowded place in Japan

Japan is a unique country. The crowd at Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Tower, Asakusa, and other well-known places in Japan are iconic images that immediately appear when we discuss Japan.

When we were on a family vacation to Japan, I took all the photos above while looking for something the opposite, a scene that lacked crowds or even without humans at all. In Japan, searching for this was very difficult, but I managed to get a few.

For me, it's important to get photos that are personal rather than getting the same approach as most people, especially in touristy places. Why? Not to impress others, but at least to get a balanced experience of a country or place.

To begin, I usually ask myself the opposite of what is already widely known. For example, Japan is crowded, are there places or times that are not crowded? Or, I like to take the details of a place, where often the details are not important to most people, but to me it's important. I will share these detailed photos in different posts.

It’s so quiet at To-Ji, my brother had a good sleep.

It’s only me and my family.
