Day 2 of Japan! Fushimi Inari-taisha & Kinkaku-ji

What’s up guys! I finally got around to finishing day 2 of the stuff we did while in Japan. We went to explore Kyoto for a bit and went to check out Fushimi Inari-taisha and Kinkaku-ji temple. In a nutshell, Fushimi Inari-taisha is where you’ll find the torii, or the bright orange traditional gates all lined up leading up a mountain. Kinkaku-ji is where you’ll find the golden pavilion, one of the famous tourist attractions in Kyoto.

Unfortunately, it was a gloomy and rainy morning which limited me to some of the shooting that I did. I didn’t want my camera and gear to get wet and damaged so I shot whatever I could when I had the chance. Plus if you’re planning to go anywhere that’s a tourist attraction, I’d suggest going early in the morning to avoid all the crowds if you’re looking to take some photos or video because once peak time hits, the crowds will just keep pouring in!

I’m glad we got to learn and physically see some history of Japan tho. It’s definitely some places to check out if you’re visiting Japan for the first time or if you’re looking for places/things to do.

Flight Out and Day 1 of Japan!!!

What’s up guys! This is officially the start of the Japan trip the girlfriend and I took in the beginning of October. In this video I showed our flight from Honolulu to Japan and what we ended up doing on our first official day there. I can’t tell you how much this video got me in my feels about Japan while I was creating it! Japan is just an amazing place! If you haven’t visited there yet, IT’S A MUST, or if you have already been there, then you already know why I’m in my feels lol.

Check out what we did and I can promise you that more videos from the trip are in the works and coming soon!  You can also peep the photos and read about the other things we did while in Japan.  There might not be too much photos this time, but that’s because I took a majority of video clips to sharpen my video skills even further.

I’ll also be moving travel content from the journal into it’s own section which will be labeled, “Travel”.  So look out for that!

Japan Day 2

sphoto, sphotohi, sphotohawaii, japan, kyoto, fushimi inari, travel, travel photography, canon, canon 80d

We spent a day (ok maybe a hand full of hours) in Kyoto today at Fushi Inari Taisha & Kinkakuji Temple and the rest of our day traveling via trains.  It was a long day that would make your feet hurt (literally) because of all the walking we did but that’s what traveling is all about right?  Exploring and seeing things/places you never see/experienced before and making the best of everything.  It was mainly sight seeing and “touristy” stuff, but it’s our first time here in Japan.  Why wouldn’t we do that?  You have to experience everything at least once while you got the chance to right?

I Finally Stepped Into The Video World

Alright, so this took me a while to actually convince myself into taking up videos because, 1) I hate learning new things and 2) I hate that on top of learning something new, I’ll have to figure out a workflow from what I’m comfortable with already.  But on the other hand, I felt as if I was at a “block” with my photography and (of course there’s many many many more things for me to learn) felt at my “max” as of today.  Like I said, it took me a while to convince myself, but I thought about it and realized that I should take a break from photography (I’m not completely stopping.  I’ll just be focusing on learning everything I can with videos now.) and acquire a new skill that can benefit me in the future!  I know I said I hate learning, hate this, hate that, but I also LOVE learning new things if it’s beneficial.  I love that learning something new can open not only your mind, but also your doors of opportunity in the future.

This day me and the boo went to Lanikai beach to just relax and enjoy our day off together.  It was a windy and cold day at the beach tho so no swimming was involved and we just sat on the sand and people watched and I got to practice shooting.  Keeping this short, here’s my very first video and I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Feel free to leave me comments and share this video if you please.
