There’s nothing particularly notable about this building and courtyard in Japan and I’m not even sure what the building is. I still find it kind of picturesque, probably just because of how clean everything in Japan is kept. I think I stayed at the hotel from where this was taken two or three times over the course of WPC travel.

This was taken on a trip before I was officially involved in the WPC. I was overseas supporting various potential customers and met up with some of the people who were there on a WPC trip. I don’t remember who we were visiting at the time, which is probably good b/c I wouldn’t say anyway. It was cool for me just to ride one of Japan’s bullet trains. This was snapped out the window as we were rocketing along, and it’s the closest shot of Mt. Fuji I got on the trip (we could see Mt. Fuji from the hotel, but very much in the distance).
