In March, 2004, I visited Japan for the first time, spending the week in Tokyo going on tours and doing a lot of walking around the place. Tokyo has to be one of the cleanest, and most workable big cities I've ever visited. With a population of 12.8 million, I was truly amazed by how easy it was to get around, and how polite people there were. They certainly show us how it's done! Anyway, here are some of the 100 plus photos I took while there, visiting places like the Meiji Shrine, the Asakusa Kinnon Temple, Ginza, the Imperial Palace, and Tokyo Bay. Frankly, I'm not a fan of big cities, but Tokyo works so well I'd move there in a second. Don't even get me started on the anime and manga... I have grouped the larger images within the galleries, so you may not have hyperlinks off all the thumbnails below. This way, all the various locations can be grouped together where necessary.
I have been to England many times in my life, but did not start photographing it until 1978, when I used a borrowed Kodak Instamatic camera. The images in this gallery were all taken with my workhorse, the Pentax SuperProgramme, which is now 16 years old. I will definitely be adding more pictures from the vast archives as time passes. This is just to whet your whistle for now...
