Picturing Japan… in England

As many of you will know, Picturing England is a sort of side hobby for me, and my real passion is Japan. You can read more about that over at Haikugirl’s Japan. I try to keep things separate – after all, this is a photo blog about England – but today I wanted to post a slight crossover. Today is the 2nd anniversary of the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, and I wanted to mark that by sharing something Japanese in England. Actually, there are a lot of things to choose from, but I decided to go with a few photos from my trip to the Japanese area of Kew Gardens at the beginning of January…

  1. Tracing Japan in England is …fascinating! Your photos are beautiful, fresh & remembering tsunami is the only way to stop a repetition. Some days, like you, I photograph or write ‘England’ while walking in Greece. Artistic traveling!

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I’m glad I’m not the only one who likes to find other cultures within a culture to photograph. Happy photographing in Greece! 🙂
