Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Japan - 01/18

Post by D2X »

At the end of january I went to Japan for a 5 days trip between Nagoya and Tokyo. During and after the huge snowfall which afforded me some nice photo conditions.

My main goal of the week, Hyakuri AB.

Kevin,

Great shots! I'm hoping to get to Japan later this year. How was Hyakuri AB? Was it easy to get to the spotting towers?

No problem at all for spotting. Usually several local spotters with me. The military police just asked me to leave from this point 36°10'08.5"N 140°24'50.0"E.
But I think I am unlucky because you can find many pictures taken here on the internet...

Before Hyakuri I visited Iruma AB during and after the snowfall.

Well, to be honest this is the negative point of the week. The days after the snowfall I made 45km in 9h... Globally, even without snow, when you're not on a Highway, road traffic is complicated.

Third stop NAF Atsugi, nice activity.
