These photos were taken during a snowstorm that occurred in 2008. The location is Kurikidai, Asao-ku, Kawasaki, Japan. The photographs include:

  • A lady walking into a park
  • Three photos of a Buddhist temple cemetery located across the small valley on the opposite hillside.
  • A photo of the cemetery of the Buddhist temple located above my residence on top of a hill.
  • The last two photos are of a farm house built recently in the traditional manner. Farming communities in each locality of Japan boast their own unique architecture. Some emphasizing roof styles, others wall design, some both.

You are free to use copies of the photographs for private use. It would be nice if you could credit

If you would like to use these and other photos of Japan for commercial reasons, please visit and select from there.

Jim lived in Japan from 1968 to 2011 when he returned (temporarily?) to take care of his elderly parents in Arizona. He enjoys meeting people and visiting new places. He has a small sailing dinghy (16") in which he started to circumnavigate Japan in October of 2010 but had to return to the US after three months due to his parents failing health.

Even in that short period of time, he had some memorable experiences.

The dinghy's name is Deai (出逢い) which in Japanese means to encounter. Although Jim loves sailing, his real objective is to encounter new people and experiences and create an blog and video documentary of his trip. A few videos were completed during the three months that you can view on his website

He plans one day to return to Japan and continue the journey.
