It’s our second day of the 5-day monochrome photo challenge. Continuing with our theme – People around the World, we’re going to re-visit Japan today. Manga, sushi, bamboo groves, and gigantic wooden temples; seriously, what’s there not to love about Japan?
Japanese kids are truly adorable. Especially, if you’re doing the green circuit between Nara and Kyoto; there’d be plenty bouncing kids to spot. It’s remarkable how well behaved they are and at the same time manage to have fun. It’s hard to come across a bawling kid and all seem to follow some unwritten code of conduct. While we took a breather in Kyoto, we spotted a young mother on her bike – taking a moment to figure her way. Not surprisingly – both her kids were a picture of calm.
It isn’t very common to find the Japanese, especially youngsters, wearing traditional wear. We’re not sure why this group of young boys chose to do their shopping in what looks like a ‘Yukata’. It was hard to ignore their gait and it almost looked as if they had walked out of a Manga book. Barring the third boy from the left, who seemed intent on proving the saying, “Boys will be Boys.”
As with most challenges – we’ve got to pass it on! We’d like to invite Kendra from Rusty Travel Trunk to participate in this photo challenge. When Kendra’s not thinking of ways of escaping her ‘cubicle’ – she’s discovering new cultures and places across the globe.
