Who I Am

I am Hans, a shutterbug, bicycle nut, and Japanophile. The site is a hobbyist venture to show off a couple of vacation snaps. And some images of the bicycles that I managed to get my hands on. I actually ride these bikes regularly on my commute and on weekend outings.

Of all the places I have visited so far, my favorite are Kyoto’s temple districts. At almost every turn you come across a shrine, a landscape garden, a bamboo groove, a Jizo statue, a torii, or any other token of the country’s captivating cultural heritage.
