Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration

Ginzan Onsen

Ginzan Onsen

Wooden inns along the Ginzan River, Japan. This is the place that inspired Hayao Miyazaki (宮崎 駿) in making the Academy Award-winning animated film “Spirited Away”. There is a nostalgic charm and it is magical at night, especially when it is snowing.

My response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Inspiration … it doesn’t have to be my inspiration, does it?

      Hi Janet, actually I’m quite surprised that you’ve watched that movie because it is unlike those mainstream Disney or western cartoons which tend to be more popular 🙂

    Beautiful shot. Just dark enough, and just light enough to give it a timeless feel. I suppose Miyazaki inspired you to take this shot in some way, so it’s your inspiration in some way 😜👌
