Discovering Tendō

Discovering Japan from Yamagata

By Christie Petrakopoulou    - 1 min read

Tendo city is in the middle of Yamagata Prefecture. Situated in between mountains, it's the perfect place for a quick getaway from a big city like Tokyo. If you're planning to visit the Tohoku region, this is a perfect place to start. If you like soba, beef, delicious fruits and shogi (Japanese chess- Tendo is the main producer in the whole country), Tendo is your perfect getaway destination. The video includes shots from different parts of Tendo city such as Mt. Maizuru, The Human Being Being Shogi Meeting Place at the peek of Mt. Maizuru, and Wakamatsu Temple.

Hi! My name is Christie and I’m a journalist/blogger. Originally from Athens, Greece but living in Stockholm, Sweden I’m doing my Masters in Media and Communication Studies at Stockholm University. For one year I’ll be living and traveling around Japan in search of new challenges and experiences. I am a Japan, dance and life enthusiast. I believe in traveling, positive energy and the power of ice-cream. I love telling stories. Stories are not only for children but for adults too! In my world stories can be told with words, photos and videos.  What do I do? I photograph and video shoot as I go. Basically my everyday life could be summed up in an endless series of pictures. I believe that photographs and videos are all about story-telling. Recreating real life inspired stories through my photographs, videos and texts is what inspires me the most and keeps me going.
