Japanese Sunflower Houses

While riding my bike back from Kofu to the onsen I was staying at in Kai (Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan) I came upon these houses in the dark. The street was somewhat busy for that time of night as it is the main thoroughfare (yamanotedoori or 山の手通り). I took a long exposure and let the headlights of the passing motorists light the scene for me.

If you can’t read Japanese, what you can purchase at these temporary shops, set up just for this evening’s event, are buttered potatoes, cold pineapple, yakisoba, and “snowballs.”

I intended to use my tripod a lot this past summer in Japan and Korea. However, it was a cheap tripod and a piece broke off in my luggage on the way over. I couldn’t fix it and ended up leaving it in Korea. I did still use it a few times as it still worked if I was very careful. Today’s photo was one such occasion. This image was a 30-second exposure.
