This will probably be the last update on this T’log. I took the shuttle bus to the airport. Since I skipped my lunch earlier on I was hungry. After finishing my check-in I decided to grab a bite. I found this Ramen restaurant. It was time to say Sayonara to the ‘Land of Rising Sun’. I would thank anupmathur, adsatinder and Shaq for their support.

A few clicks in the hotel and airport prior to departure.

I am posting RAW edits done in Light-room. Can you find the difference between Jpeg and RAW edits of my P & S Olympus stylus 1 clicks?
So these are all RAW edits for Day 1, Yoyogi Park: Jpegs from both my mobile and P & S cameras have already been posted.
So sit back and devour the fall colors of Momijigiri! This COVID pandemic will keep us rooted and tied to our homes which is probably the safest place now.
