Ouchijuku with NHK

I am spending 3 days in Fukushima trying to capture of beauty of this part of Japan.   This region has suffered a lot since the Magnitude 9.0 earthquake of 2011 triggered a tsunami that killed 16,000+ people and triggered a nuclear disaster and I wanted to share a bit of the daily life that still goes on here. Today's Configuration:  Leica M9-P with a Noctilux 50mm f/0.95, Summilux 35mm f/1.4 and Summilux 21mm f/1.4
