this is a hot bath before dinnertime

*May 2010, in Hokkaido, Japan, touring the hot springs in the area. Every day we bathed three times - once upon waking, once before dinnertime, and once before going to bed. The biting cold weather made the hot springs feel extra nice. It was so lush and green and rainy at the time.


  1. I love these pictures. My teacher went to Japan, and she is in love with that beautiful country. When I see this pictures I can understand her love even more. So peaceful and perfect.

  2. I really like your photos! These are so serene and you take gorgeous food photos too.
