Get out to Mitoyo in Kagawa for a world famous photography location. Here are a couple of very nice videos about the area. Very enjoyable, and if you are a cameraperson, this is the place to be.
This great video goes a little further with dance and video put together. The visual combination is awesome. Wow.
I love how the light is different in each season and for different times. You will likely capture some images that are only possible for when YOU are there.
