Photos of Japan
By Totomai Martinez
Autumn Lake in Yamanashi, Japan
"This is my favorite autumn photo that I took. I can still remember the time I went around
this lake and almost forgot to take photos because I was in awe."
Otaru Canal in Hokkaido, Japan
"One of the popular winter destinations in Japan is in Hokkaido. During winter,
the town celebrates annual snow festival showcasing ice scultptures.
The Otaru canal is particularly famous during the blue hour."
Sakura at Meguro, Tokyo, Japan
"Another cherry blossoms pic. I decided to include this, as night viewing
of cherry blossoms are very popular in Tokyo area."
Poppies at Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan
"Another spring photo but poppies are also popular in Japan during springtime.
Most tourists think that during spring, only cherry blossoms can be seen in Japan."
Hamaorisai at Chigasaki, Japan
"This is how Japanese welcome summer.
It was one of the unique activities I have seen here."
Mt. Fuji at Yamanashi, Japan
"I guess Japan series will not be complete if Mt. Fuji
is not included. It’s one of my favorite photos."
As I mentioned last week, Poets United will be taking a winter break. All will go on as usual this next week, but next Sunday we will have the final Poetry Pantry for 2014. After that at Poets United you will see a holiday message which will remain in place until January 4's Poetry Pantry, when our usual schedule will resume once more!
This week's beautiful photos have been shared by Totomai. Hope you all enjoy them. Stop back at Poets United for Sherry's interview of Totomai on Monday. I know that you will enjoy it! And on Wednesday, you will find another writing opportunity at the Midweek Motif. Here's a hint: The subject this next week will involve music. You will find out more on that day. Smiles. And on Friday, remember to see who Rosemary Nissen-Wade features on "I Wish I Had Written This" or "The Living Dead."
