Frantisek Staud waiting for the light at Jodogahama beach
During my latest voyage to Japan, I traveled thousands
of miles on Japanese trains, climbed recently erupted volcano in Kyushu,
witnessed private tea ceremony, experienced the ancient tradition of
UKAI - cormorant fishing.
I had myself buried into hot sand in Kyushu and enjoyed natural hot
springs of Shirahama, I was lucky enough to watch morning practice of
Sumo wrestlers in a Tokyo professional stable
and was invited for private meditation with a Buddhist monk in the darkness
of his temple. I was left speechless in the heights of Tokyo's
Mori Tower with millions of city lights beneath and yet again, I
could not resist visiting my favorite Zen
gardens of Kyoto.
Yes, I had my cameras with me all the time. Bellow are
a few samples of what you can expect once all my slides have been scanned.
