For those that know me and for those that follow this humble little photoblog, they’ll know that I have a lot of favorite places. A lot! But there are some locations that stand just slightly above others. Japan is one of those locations. And to get specific, one such location within the country is Lake Chuzenji in Nikko of the Tochigi Prefecture. I absolutely love it there and I could easily see myself living up there. It’s a beautiful and simple mountain town that surrounds Lake Chuzenji and though I’ve only been a visitor I would love to give that kind of living situation a try. And considering that I’m a guy that loves sunsets and sunrises, watching the sunset by that lake has by far been one of my personally favorite moments in all of my travels. Seeing those light beams popping off from behind the mountains is something that I’ll never forget. And while I’m glad I have a photo of it I know that I’ll always have the memories pleasantly etched in my mind.
