Ihave longed held a fascination in Japanese culture – from the futuristic technologies and design aesthetics to the historical culture and Japanese Zen philosophy. Japan is a good example of the dualism between the modern and the traditional.

With my lonely planet as my guide, I navigated my way through a few places in Japan. I wondered the streets of the blade runner-esque mega city of Tokyo and experienced the traditional past in Kyoto. I had decided to film my time here on a Sony Handycam MiniDV camcorder. I have only a few photos of some of the places I visited to show. This was my first solo trip abroad, and so will always hold a special place in my travel memories.
