Photographer's Note

Still from my archive but now into 2012, a year that spelled a lot of change for me.

I brought some friends along for a holiday in Japan(again) and this time we decided to travel north to the city of Sendai.
Remind you this was less than a year after the great Tohoku earthquake and tsunami and we were a little sceptical of what we might meet.

The city of Sendai was , with exception of the harbour and costal areas, relatively untouched. We could see the signs of the quake, like signs of landslides, damage to light conrete structures and such, but other than this the city seemed almost untouched.

I shot this panorama (stitched from 11 photos) from atop Aobayama, the site of the old Sendai Castle, Aoba-jo. It give a great view of both the city of Sendai and a lot of the surrounding areas.
Also this was in the middle of winter, and northern Japan isn't exactly known for its warm weather this time of year. Pretty much all vegetation looks scoured and dead, but the area is famous for its Cherry blossoms in spring and that is a time I want to go back for. OJJ
