Photos from my recent trip to Japan, Part 3: Fushimi Inari hike

It’s time for part three with photos I snapped in Japan. These are some of my best shots from the Fushimi Inari hike, which is a 3-4 hour walk up and down a small mountain, through over 10 000 orange-red gates. Beautiful scenery, lots of history. A must-see when you are in Kyoto. Not too difficult to do and very rewarding. Just make sure to be there as early as possible in the morning as it tends to become more crowded the further into the day you get.

Photos from my recent trip to Japan, Part 1: Osaka

I recently got back from a one week trip to Japan. My main reason to go there was for my friends wedding, but I also got time to visit some really cool places. Here are my best photos from an afternoon and evening in Osaka, more specifically in the areas Dōtonbori and Shinsekai. I really really like the laidback vibe in Osaka and of course it has some amazing spots if you want to use your camera.

All of my photos were taken with an Huawei P30 Pro mobile phone. I’m trying it out as an possible replacement for my old system camera. So far I’m very impressed with the results. It’s not perfect all the time but it supports RAW format and I don’t need to switch lenses depending on of  I want to take closeups, wide-angle or night photos.

And of course, the best camera is always the one you have with you.
