It’s fortunate to have friends in amazing places, like Japan! In May 2017 I travelled to see my friend Sarah in Chigasaki, about an hour south east from Tokyo. I spent a week exploring Japanese culture and photographing life in Chigasaki, making new friends and stretching my legs. In search of nature, I darted on the train to hike Mt. Tanzawa, staying overnight in an amazing and authentic guest house.┬áMy visit was also the perfect opportunity to meet editor of Skate Slate Magazine Japan, Dan Pepe, in Yokohama.
