A beautiful canal

It definitely has a untouched Venice tourist feel about it. No doubt the man in the "Gondola" will give me a much cheaper rate too !!

Wow, this is a beautiful monochrome photo! Love it very much. I am certain you can take a great photo when you visit Japan! One thing that I can recommend to you is to organize your trip to the place where festival takes place (or any sort of traditional events) if you are interested in history, culture, religion of Japan:) I can help you out if you need.

ahhahhaha... that would be fun.


thats for your generousity in guiding me. am ironing the date. however it will be a short trip, it is more like a checking trip or reccee before the actual one.
