Back in January I took a trip to Choshi on the Pacific coast of Chiba Prefecture with my photographer buddy Anthony Wood. I got there later than I had intended, which meant I missed the real sunrise. This was truly unfortunate, because it was beautiful … from the car! But, I did arrive at the coast in time to grab this shot. This was taken right next to the Choshi Lighthouse, which is a pretty place in and of itself. In fact, this area is the furthest Eastern point in Honshu, so it’s a good place to take sunrise if you’re in Japan. Just make sure you get there in time!
