Japan, We Love You.
After the Fuji Rock Festival, Dylan and I were able to travel to Hokkaido. We took a 9-hour shinkansen train ride from Tokyo and traveled through peaceful inakas (villages). We traveled through Fukushima, Sendai and finally to Hachinohe.
These are a couple of shots I took during our train ride. We slept most of the time, but every now and then I'd wake up and see green fields and a quiet seaside. This is a side of Japan that many people don't get to see.
Northeast Japan no longer looks like this and I am still in denial that this is all gone. I really don't know how to express my emotions to the devastation that Japan has been through in the past week. It's hard for me to even move on and write about our time in Japan. But I hope, in writing about Japan, we can celebrate the country's strength and beauty.
Japan, we love you.
Donate to Japan. Don't forget about Haiti.
