Dawn from a jetplane on the way to Japan

If someone goes to various places, he will see various landscapes. Sometimes the scenery is so beautiful. Recently, I often visit countries in Asia, and I am sometimes overwhelmed with astonishing landscapes of each country. This is a site I intended to create for introducing such wonderful scenery or scenes of Asian countries including Japan.

色々な場所に行ってみると、色々な風景が見られます。時にはその風景はひときわ美しかったりします。最近、私はアジア各国を訪問することが多く、各国の「はっとする」風景に圧倒されることがあります。日本を含めたアジア諸国のそのような素晴らしい風景や情景を紹介したみたいと思い立って作ったサイトです。
