Driving to Mount Tsukuba – Ibaraki

Posted in Nature, Places by tokyobling on December 1, 2014

A couple of weeks ago I took these photos on a drive from Tsukuba City to Mount Tsukuba. It was a sunny day with clear skies and and just had to take some photos of the driving in this part of Japan. The autumn leaves looks fantastic this time of the year! I passed the entrance to the Tsukuba University campus. “Tsukuba Dai” is probably one of the premier centers of Science education and research in Asia.

On a bright day like this the camera makes it look like the cars are standing still, which makes for boring photos. Luckily we were passed by a motorcyclist and a little tweaking of the camera settings produced a more interesting photograph. I believe it was the last weekend of the year with near perfect motorbiking weather!
