Yamaguchi prefecture (my Japanese home) is one of the most rural in Japan. Getting from one place to another means traversing sweeping mountain vistas, a mist laden hill-side on one side and enchanting country-side on the other. Roads wander blindly through dense forest; snake dramatic mountain passes; meander quaint rice paddies; endlessly wind along dramatic costal passes. Taking a drive is more than getting from a to b, it is an adventure. An adventure that offers the opportunity to take some cool photos along the way.
