Kendo is a traditional Japanese martial art very popular abroad too, children at school plays it and is part of Japanese police training. I took this pictures in Wakamatsu, Fukushima prefecture, where there is a great tradition in martial art because there was a castle and so many samurai lived there in the past, young generation are keeping alive this tradition after the end of the American ban on martial arts during the post war occupation of Japan.

If you are interested in technical details: I shoot this picture with the 105 mm. macro lens, wide open to have a great bochen effect, with natural light coming from a window and balanced the white (very important to do so correctly ;-) no post production nor saturation correction.

Outside the main door of sake factory there is always anging a nice big ball made of brunches of Japanese cedar, they put it outsidein Winter, when the sake is made and all leaves are gree, in Summer the leaves turn to a nice red and that means the sake is mature and ready to drink.
