Atami 2002 Photo Gallery

Some pictures I took on a trip to Atami in 2002.

Atami is a resort town on Japan's east coast, somewhat south of Tokyo. The most remarkable thing about it is how much of a chintzy tourist trap it is. Atami Castle is a perfect example--looks cool until you realize that it was built as a tourist attraction in the '60s. OK, I suppose it still looks cool after you realize that, but only looks--the construction is entirely modern.

You can navigate in the zoomed images with the left and right arrow keys, or clicking the left or right half of the image. Hit escape or click anywhere off the image to get out of the show.
