Well, throughout my 6 years of guiding photography tours in Japan, I was struggling only with this amazing spot in Hakone. Somehow it was always cloudy and mount Fujisan never show up while I was staying here. As Japanese say you always will return back if you didn't see Fuji for the first time. Now I can say it's true! 😀 Danielkordan.com

Series of images about Japanese torii gates. Torii literally means "bird perch" mark the transition from the mundane to the sacred. Well, no wonder the eagle sit on these gates while I was shooting long exposures. On the third image is an icon of Japan second only perhaps to Mount Fuji, the floating torii of Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima. Currently it's under construction, but you can find thousands of beautiful torii all over Japan 🇯🇵 #Japan #ilovejapan #NikonZ7 #nikon #madewithluminar #gitzoinspires

It was my third time visiting Japan this year. Starting from snowy villages in January, then fireflies project in June and now I'm back home after wonderful autumn photography workshop. What's next? I'm planning a winter tour in Hokkaido! Japan has certainly a lot of places to discover. Danielkordan.com #Japan #ilovejapan #Nikon #gitzoinspires #madewithluminar #fireflies

Iconic Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto. That's pretty busy place in the daytime, but off the season it's still very quiet. Thousands of vermilion torii gates lead up the mountain, which straddle a network of trails behind the shrine main buildings. These trails lead into the vast forest of the sacred Mount Inari. It stands at 233 meters and belongs to the shrine grounds. Danielkordan.com #japan #Kyoto #ilovejapan #Nikon #gitzoinspires #madewithluminar

One of the quiet beautiful temples in Kyoto with explosion of autumn colors. Kyoto is a home for hundreds of temples, and it's very easy to find yourself off the beaten path in a corner like this. Danielkordan.com photography workshop in Japan 🇯🇵

I'm very happy to arrive to Kyoto today with my photography workshop group. It's one of my most favorite cities on Earth. Place where traditional meets modern, city with thousands of temples and gardens. And today it's with explosion of autumn colors. Sometimes people complain that they find Kyoto crowded and busy. Those just didn't travel to such quiet spots slightly outside the main busiest streets. Danielkordan.com #Kyoto #ilovejapan #Nikon #osaka #tokyo #tokyocameraclub #madewithluminar #gitzoinspires

Mount Fuji San, majestic symbol of Japan framed by graphical trees. There are so many spots with lakes, autumn foliage, forests in front of Fuji. But this place always stays as my most favorite to see sunrise in Japan. #Japan #ilovejapan #nikon #mountfuji #fujisan #fujikawaguchiko #Kawaguchiko #tokyocameraclub #tokyo #Kyoto #osaka

That's one of my most favorite places in Japan - Koyasan. Where traditions are still well kept, where you feel ancient and rural spirit of Japan. Just wandering at Okunoin cemetery in the night is very special! Several kilometers of mossy ancient torii gates, lanterns, tall cedar trees. Isn't there a deep sense of magic? I'm heading here again in a few days with my photography workshop group. Danielkordan.com #Japan #ilovejapan #koyasan #okunoin #Nikon #madewithluminar #gitzoinspires

Collection of night / star trails images from South Korea. I spent several hours under these beautiful pine trees star gazing and shooting trails on my Nikon Z 7 + 14-24 nikkor. Danielkordan.com

I believe these Korean pine trees make landscape very special. Although they all might look the same it took us quite a while with @nate.merz to reach them. They are scattered across the country. Koreans admire such bonsai trees so people make hiking trails high up in mountains just to reach the tree and enjoy the view. Usually we start at 9 p.m., it took us 3 hours to drive to the foot of the mountain and then another 2 hours to hike up in the dark. Spending night with star gazing and a short nap before sunrise - and enjoying first rays of light on Korean bonsai tree. Each tree has it's own character. Danielkordan.com

Cobra pine trees in South Korea. This pine forest groove is definitely one of the most amazing I've ever seen. Seems like trees are dancing or crawling as ancient Ents. Danielkordan.com

Just next to the city with 10 million people - Seoul - you can find such a peaceful place Dobongsan. 2 hours hike up to the mountain ridge and you are above sea of clouds in the middle of the nature. Just distant noise of waking Seoul traffic reminds you of the city life. Danielkordan.com

Dancing Korean pine trees. You may have noticed that my Korean series has an emphasis on pines. I find them the most beautiful and most graceful in the world. From every single different angles these pines interact with each other, dance and play. Just a little step aside changes the composition drastically. Oh how I love places like this making your brain work hard on composition problems. Danielkordan.com

Carved in a rock. It may seem to be a hard way to hike up in mountains for 2-3 hours to reach each of these pine trees in my Korean series. But it's nothing compared how hard it was for the pine to grow from this rock. Danielkordan.com
