This picture was taken in the city of Huis ten Bosch. This is an entire dutch city built in Japan, Nagasaki prefecture. You could say that this is a brand new medieval city. What is interesting about this place is that it was built entirely in a dutch manner, dutch architecture. Also, every brick and every building material was brought from Netherlands. Even the manpower that helped build this place was brought from Netherlands. It is a very beautiful place, but too new for my taste :). I guess the only thing that's lacking is the effect that time has on medieval cities. The aging brought by time is missing.
But I like to think that this is how the cities looked in medieval Netherlands before time put its mark on them. Hope you enjoy it. Other pictures will follow.

What an odd and unique (in Japan) town! I remember seeing it actually on TV, as part of Michael Palin's "Full Circle" series.
From what I understand it is a tourist destination in Japan. Something a bit odd and out of the ordinary - a little taste of Europe in Japan.
Nice capture. Although is it leaning to the left - you could correct that in a photo software like PhotoShop.
I like how cluttered the image is. Adds to the feeling that it is out of place.

Sincer daca nu citeam nota , nu as fi crezut ca este in Japonia!Sora mea a fost acolo pt doua saptamani si nu mi-a povestit despre asa ceva !!!sa vezi ce cearta ii administrez !!
Imi arati o fata nestiuta si nebanuita despre o tara fantastica si interesanta: le admir ingeniozitatea , inteligenta,patriotismul si mai ales aceasta abilitatea a lor de a folosi orice le poate oferi natura!
In aceasta fotografie ai reusit sa combini atatea elemente incat sincer par mai multe fotografii cu teme diferite combinate intr-una ....superb!

Foarte interesanta poza, pt. ca este din Japonia !?
Culorile sunt exceptionale, la fel si compunerea scenei.
Inca o poza de nota 10.
O saptamana placuta, si asteptam continuarea!
