Japan. Part 02. People and Food.

After we came back from an adventure, we can talk about the spots we visit, the important landmarks that proved we made it, the beauty of rare flowers, mountains, lakes and trees, we can talk about those for hours.

But I really believe the most important part is the people, they who made the country alive.

I usually like to observe people (it’s really my job as a painter), but during trips it’s usually better, I get to be with them, experience their lives.

Here are some small snippets of people from Japan

Ever wonder what’s their story?

We were lucky enough to see real geishas on the street of Kyoto, but too shy to ask for photos, therefore this is the only ‘stalking’ photo we made without being intrusive to their activity.

Fashion, identities.

You can try, but you will never be as cool as this guy.

And then, of course their food. Food is a language of passion, of identity. IMG_0161-20 IMG_9745-7
