Ginza Wako and Mitsukoshi


Butterfly, Daienji

Companion, Daienji

Nature's gifts are with us every day but it's seldom we receive one that seems personalized. As the solitary photographer surveyed the statues on a quiet morning this butterfly alighted on one. A few hurried shots were taken before it became clear that the little visitor had no intention of leaving soon. It said, "take your time; that's why we're here," and posed for a good, long while.



Ikasumi makes a return visit to this unique temple, a place worth visiting every few months to cleanse the soul.

Bridge and Platform


Not the first time photographing the bridge at Ochanomizu, but it seems to appear in different ways at each viewing.
