I shot this series in the beautiful area of Kamikochi a few hours from Tokyo. Some people call it the Yellowstone National Park of Japan. But I though it was almost like the Disneyland of Nature. There were Thousands of Tourists being bussed in each day to take the day tour, there were restaurants, hotels and shops right next to the amazing views.
One morning at 4am when I was out photographing the sunrise I had lost all feeling in my hands in sub zero temperatures. However I was able to pick up a hot honey and lemon drink from a nearby vending machine. It was a total contrast between beautiful nature and the infrastuscture that supports the hoardes of tourists.
