I first visited Himakajima in 2012 and remember returning home in the evening with a glow of self accomplishment on time well spent. I’d left early in the morning and spent the day wandering and photographing with my cherished Leica M6 and a roll of awful Lomography film. That combination of exploring a new place and getting slightly creative made me happy. I cringe looking back now at my original post now but who cares? Certainly not anyone reading this I presume.
