Dispatches from Japan: Day Five

by Grace Bonney

It’s been such a pleasure having Ayumi Horie join us all week with photographs from her trip to Japan during Cherry Blossom season. If the gorgeous trees and strands of origami weren’t enough, all of these photos of tiny deer in Nara Park are making me want to pack up and leave right now. Today Ayumi is sharing one last set of photos with us, including a breathtaking shot of Kasuga Taisha in Nara Park, above. That sort of peace and quiet is the best way to start the day. Thank you so much to Ayumi for sharing her trip with us all week. You can check out more of Ayumi’s photos right here on her Instagram feed and check out her “Pots in Action” feed here, too. xo, grace
