A few months ago, I traveled to Japan to ride one of the world’s most luxurious boutique trains for a few nights across the southernmost island of Kyushu. Pretty much the most amazingly spoiled rotten thing I’ve ever done in my life. I was taking pictures for a story about the train and the island overall. We visited Mount Aso, Nagasaki, that abandoned mining island where some scenes from James Bond were filmed a few years back, Fukuoka, and a handful of small onsen towns as well. Basically a week’s worth of work that felt like anything but a week’s worth of work. Which is arguably how all jobs should feel. Here are the tearsheets from the magazine. I’ll post some outtakes soon as well. Until then.
