Photos of everyday life in Japan

 By Elena Lisina   Aug 18, 2016

When I travel, I try to watch life in motion rather than only visiting the places of interest. I try to notice many details – how people like to dress, their facial expressions, business as usual and their habits. Also, I like to wander the plain streets and watch ordinary houses where people live. Such places give me more understanding of a country. Thus, most of my photos taken in Japan are the photos of people and their surroundings. That’s what I enjoy!

Nice pictures, I also find the locals as interesting as the famous sights if not more. It reveals a lot about places that we travel to.

Hai, sou desuyo! Arigatou gozaimasu! I don't know why people tend to take the photos of architecture? Spirit of a country is in people and surroundings, in daily life, isn't it?
