Takayama StorefrontDec 30th, 2008 | By Shane Sakata | Category: Photo Gallery, Shopping
A bright red paper umbrella graces the entrance to a lovely shop in Takayama, Japan. Danielle Ruschena captured this image on a recent visit to the area and I am pleased to present it here with her permission. Thanks Danielle!
Takayama is located in Gifu Prefecture, one of nine prefectures that make up the Chubu Region of Japan.
In her own words:
“This photo was taken in Hida Takayama in late October 2008. The shop is one of several in traditional buildings on the edge of town, near the open air museum and the Gassho-En where we were staying. It was a grey day and chillier than we had expected, or dressed for, and this parasol seemed to beckon to us from across the road, its brilliant red promising warmth and friendliness within.
Details: Pentax K20D, Tamron 18-250mm “
