Of all the countries I have visited and photographed, Japan is the most unique so unlike anywhere else is it culturally.  In wildlife terms some of it’s iconic species are almost indigenous in their nature too.  Some of the key places to work have become increasingly busy over the years and as a result it is a place about the beauty of the images achievable rather than the experience of taking them, but the extraordinary food and cultural encounters to be had balance it all out for me.
