Photolog Series Announcement - Japan 2008

With this aka I sooner or later had to go to Japan. Unfortunately, I was too late for the real hanami (cherry blossom watching) period but I still passed some dazzling two weeks over there!
In the following posts I will try to convey some experiences and provide some photos with a special focus on German influences in Japan.
Watch out.
