Japan Trip Oct-Nov 2013 / by Ian Roche

A few weeks ago I set out on a last-minute trip to Japan with a couple of great friends of mine. I hadn't been to Asia in over 10 years and it felt like a long overdue trip that I sorely needed. The timing wasn't great but as I always do, I said "fuck it" and went anyways. 

I've never been a huge proponent of traveling from behind a camera lens. I know what you're thinking, as a photographer you'd think I want to just take photos of everything. Honestly though, I feel like doing that kind of takes the essence out of exploring and enjoying a new country. That said, I still tried to take as many pictures as possible. 

Here's the resulting gallery, most of the shots were taken on my Canon 6d and a handful are iPhone 5 shots.
