I am going to Australia for two weeks; I won’t be posting any new HDR’s for a while, only for a little over two weeks though!
My friend, my brother and I stayed at a Ryokan after we hiked Mt. Fuji. It was the best hotel experience ever! This HDR has a funny story behind it. After I took the three exposures with my tripod attached, I left my camera on the side while my friends and I bathe in the Onsen. Then, a random guy came in and saw the camera pointing towards the Onsen. I suppose he felt uncomfortable… so I got up and turn the camera around. After, he kept his distance while bathing in the Onsen with us.
Ervine, Joe, and I stayed in this Ryokan! Pretty isn’t it? Staying at a Ryokan was the best experience in Japan. Just before staying here, we hiked Mt. Fuji overnight to catch the sunrise. Oh man, what an experience! I’m not doing it again! Like the Japanese say, “one who never climbs Mount Fuji is a fool, and one who climbs twice is twice the fool.” It was relieving to soak in a onsen after hiking the tallest mountain in Japan. We had a delicious washoku dinner that night. After, we had the best beer I’ve ever tasted, Fujiyama Biru! Kanpai!
