Japan Road Trip

What a busy year it’s been! It feels like I’ve been on the road more than I’ve been home and I’m just now getting around to sifting through all the pictures I’ve taken.

Way back in January, I had the opportunity to work throughout Japan for my good friends at Drivingplates.com. Over the course of nine days, I, along with my wise and talented local fixer, Masato Yamada, filmed special effects plates around Osaka, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Mt. Fuji before finishing up in Tokyo. Along the way, Masato took me to visit many off-the-beaten-path shrines and temples as well as some amazing restaurants. I will leave out the food pics here, but the cuisine was certainly a highlight of the trip, as my Instagram feed illustrates.
