Roll #57

A visit to a mountaintop Shinto temple, Ikaho hot springs, and Haruna Lake:

The roof of the Shinto temple:

Shinto temple in Kanagawa, Ota, Japan:

Gates at the temple called “torii” in Japanese:

As you walk through the torii gates towards the temple, you are meant to be walking from the mundane to the sacred. Not sure what the paper lightning things symbolize:

Walking around a frozen Lake Haruna:

Landscape version:

Amy and I at the Stone Steps in Ikaho hot springs town. The water and steam behind her is the water flowing down from the spring at the top of the mountain. It’s hot and filled with minerals that the Japanese believe are healing. There were public footbaths higher up:

Narrow streets and shops in the town:

Entrance to some kind of pork restaurant:

Looking down at the town. I wish I had a shot (that wasn’t washed out) looking up at the town but the afternoon sun washed em all out :(. Then youd get a better idea of what the town looks like. The whole town is just located aside the steps leading up the hill peaking at the hot spring. Very cool. It’s filled with souvenir shops, street food, onsens (bathhouses), etc:

Town:

Souvenirs:

There are some more Ikaho pictures that are in an unfinished roll currently in my camera…

  1. Beautiful shots, I especially like the shot of the pork restaurant and the souvenirs..I still have a Pentax K1000 and a the original Canon Eos 35 mm. It’s almost impossible to find film though. Where do you get yours?

    thanks man. i buy film from a local camera shop but you can also buy em online (usually cheaper too which offsets the shipping costs)
