I did one roll on B&W, I think Kurashiki looks especially good on B&W and I am really happy with this film Neopan 1600 super presto by Fuji, but I was so sad to know that they stopped making this film and I can't buy it any more! :(

So this will be my last post on Kurashiki, I hope you enjoyed the photos. It's really a beautiful city so if you have a chance to travel to the Chugoku Area (where Hiroshima is) I recommend you take a day or two to go visit Kurashiki!

Also a big thank you to those who left lovely comments about my Tokyo mini photo zine! I'm thinking to sell it so please wait for a little announcement :)

  1. LOvely b&w photos ! Beautiful b&w work is really hard to achieve but you did such a great job :D

    Talk about camera film, my dad who is avid amateur photographer is struggling with his hobby now that film processing service and the the film itself become hard to find. I think he's considering digital camera now.

  5. kurashiki was one of the first places I ever visited in japan so it's a pretty special place for me too.
    I wasn't into taking photos back then (like 15 years ago) but after seeing all your photos (and past posts) I'd love to go back.
    your photos are amazing as always!

  11. Oh wow, this town looks so good in black and white (but I'm sure it would look amazing in colour too). The perspective in that first image is crazy! And I love that draped material.

  12. love this black and white series!
    just recently i heard that fuji also stops selling the amateur slide film production and will only continue its professional series, which is three times as expensive. so sad.
