Guest photographers receive a feature article that includes a single image and a few words about where the shot was taken and the story behind it.  The Nihon Sun will provide link back to the photographers blog, Flickr site and/or where the photo can be purchased.  The images is then added to the Japan Photo Gallery with a caption and a link.  Copyright remains with the photographer at all times although The Nihon Sun cannot be held liable for copyright infringement.
