The Hidden Beauty of Japan: 2017 Calendar

The Japan National Tourism Organization has released a set of beautiful photographs under the theme “The Hidden Beauty of Japan”. The set of 12 photographs is released in the form of a calendar in various desktop sizes and features hidden landscapes all over Japan.

The 12 months are:

  • January: Hirakasa Hadaka-Mairi (Naked Pilgrimage), Iwate
  • February: First Tadami River Bridge, Fukushima
  • March: A low-water crossing, Kochi
  • April: Cherry trees around Matsugamine, Niigata
  • May: Chubusangaku National Park, Toyama
  • June: Nabegataki Falls, Kumamoto
  • July: Summer Festival at Mt. Akagi, Gunma
  • August: Takachiho Gorge, Miyazaki
  • September: Red Spider Lily at Kinchakuda, Saitama
  • October: Kuroyu Onsen, Akita
  • November: Ritsurin Garden, Kagawa
  • December: Night View of Kinosaki Onsen, Hyogo

Being march-born I must say I have taken a special liking to “A low-water crossing, Kochi” but every picture is quite amazing especially the ones in the fall.
