Some of my favorite pictures of Japan

With all the news coverage about Japan and the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor issues, all you see is death, destruction and sorrow.  Well, that's not the Japan I know.  The Japan I know is a beautiful place.  See for yourself:
Shubuya at night.  Photo taken November 2008.
The cherry blossoms near my house.  
The view from Mt. Mitake.  
Kyoto, Japan.  
Kyoto, Japan. 
Japanese bride, Tokyo, Japan. 
The fog on the way to Nagano, Japan.
A snow monkey taking a bath in Nagaon, Japan.  
These are some of my favorite pictures that I've taken while living in Japan.  This is the Japan I know and love.
