Famous garden Kenroku-en in Kanazawa is beautiful in every season, but I went there on a sunny autumn day and wandered around camera in hand for hours. There is plenty of moss and evergreen growth to contrast with the autumn colors. Autumn sunshine filtered through the trees and reflected off the pond, and I longed to stay there until the light faded away. I didn't, because Kanazawa has many attractions, but I really loved Kenroku-en!

I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for one year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for nine years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014. I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
