~ Going upstream in 2019 ~
Happy December, today is super cold. Felt like the freezing temperature came out of nowhere... it was really warm a few days ago, too. Well, 2018 is coming to an end soon, looking forward and climbing higher in 2019.
~ Wanderin’ Kansai ~
Starting to piece together my next big Wanderin’ travel film. Got some pretty good stuff coming your way, finally finished editing and catching up on client work. Onto releasing projects I’ve been slowly working on!
~ 物の哀れ ~
Mono no aware; another beautiful Japanese phrase I was taught, which means the bittersweetness of fading beauty. In this case, it’s the fleeting season of autumn as Japan approaches the last few days before all the fall foliage disappears into winter.
~ Rays of sunlight ~
Luckily the day I came here the weather was super nice because a few days before and days after it started raining and became freezing cold. Feeling blessed for good weather for good footage.
~ Cherry Blossom? Nah, just autumn ~
This place is actually ranked number 1 in the Kansai region as the best place to view the nicest fall foliage. Glad I caught it before all the leaves started falling!
~ December 2018 ~
I wanna take a moment and give a shout out to all the people who have helped me and pushed me since last December. I was in a weird spot last December, I was happy but I knew I could be doing so much more. Fast forward a year later, I have traveled to 4 different continents in less than 3 months working on exciting projects with different clients and people.

~ 風物詩 Fuubutsushi ~
A Japanese phrase which means things that remind you of a season, whether it’d be feelings, scents, or images that brings memories, thoughts or anticipation of a particular season. I feel the fleeting autumn season with the coming of winter ❄️ aka cuffing season
~ Street food at night ~
One of the best things I love about Asia and not just Japan is the variety of street food that is widely available throughout the night. You can find everything you’re craving for, for a low price 🤤
~ Osaka Castle ~
The moment I found this angle, I was so drawn into making sure I can replicate what I saw and the emotions I got out of seeing this scene. What do you feel and where does it inspire you to go next?
