Tōhoku is a diverse place with many different lifestyles. There are significant dialect differences from one area to another and the economy ranges from agricultural to heavy industry. If you drive a Prius C, it may well have been built in this part of Japan.
The photographs here show some of that diversity. On this page, there are some general pictures and more specific groups of photographs can be accessed through the menu above.
I have also included pages of photos I have taken in other parts of Japan.
