Korea & Japan

A few shots from our visit to Asia last week. We spent time in South Korea (visiting a friend) and then laid over in Tokyo for the weekend. Very much enjoyed seeing these cultures and incredible cities (Seoul & Tokyo). Yes, the camera stores in both of these cities were awesome, but Seoul actually had better deals and better selection I thought. K&J-150

This awesome view is from the New York Bar on the 42nd floor of the Park Hyatt Hotel. This is the bar in Lost in Translation with Bill Murray.
