  1. Hi Kosu,
    a very interesting and nice blog. I like Japan very much and will surely use your blog for suggestions for my!next trip.

    One question. I found many of your photos (day and night) very colourful. Is this just the camera or are you usin a special program during or after the shots (some photos nearly look HDR-like).

    1. Hi Chilangoflyer, thank you for your comment. I am using a software, “Adobe Lightroom”, for retouching after taking photos. Some people prefer actual colors while others prefer memory color, and I am for the latter. Anyway, I appreciate your compliment 🙂
