Photography: Koukoen by Risachantag Photography: Koukoen by Risachantag
If you're a long time watcher, this place might look a little familiar. =)

I went to Koukoen (in Himeji) in 2006 as well, with a rather crappier camera, so I had a lot of fun taking photos of some of the same subjects I took photos of last time. You can see a photo of the same bridge from my previous trip here: [link]

It's such a pretty place; I'm glad I had another chance to come back here. More photos to follow, no doubt.

I think this is a much better shot than the last one. It just looks absolutely perfect. So perfect I almost don't believe it's a photograph - it's more like a terrific painting.

Furthermore, it's very calming to look at.
