Is there anything more vibrant than Japan during cherry blossom season?
Enjoy these aerial photographs of Motohakone, and Lake Ashi in Hakone and Arashiyama and the Katsura River in Kyoto, Japan.
Arashiyama was one of the most picturesque places we visited in Japan. Known for its bamboo grove, Arashiyama is also famous for its shrines, parks, and the Hozu River gorge.
The hillsides along the river are covered with trees of all colours. Looking at the gorge, I just knew that I had to fly right in-between the two hills and capture the spectacular view!
Lake Ashi provides some of the most beautiful views of Mt. Fuji. We wouldn’t know because the day we arrived, it was completely overcast and Mt. Fuji was no where in sight. But an hour into our arrival, the clouds behind us starting clearing up giving me hope that we could finally see Fuji if we waited. So, we waited, and waited, and waited.
Sadly, no Fuji. But the aerial photos still turned out gorgeous.
