Japantown - San Jose, CA

Last month, I took a trip to San Jose, CA to shoot some photos. I have photos from Kelley Park (Japanese Friendship Garden and History Park) and Japantown. The photos will be separated into 3 parts. I hope you guys like the photos!

The photos for today are from Japantown (NiHonMaChi) in San Jose, CA. I shot these photos after having Udon noodles for lunch in Japantown.

Message From the Photographer: Hi guys, I have some bad news. My Nexus 5's radio just broke. As you know I am quite the computer geek too, and I gave it my all trying to fix the device (resetting things to make sure it isn't a software glitch). Anyways, I have failed, and more than likely the physical cellphone radio broke (so it won't connect to my carrier at all). My phone is very important in my photography. I do sometimes use the camera on the phone for some of my photos, use it to navigate to my photo shoot destination, and many times I will need to tether my DSLR to my phone for certain types of photos. I am not asking for donations, but I am asking for some help to build up some funding on a new smartphone. I'm a poor college student. It might seem like I have all the money in the world, but most of my photography equipment is from my parents. I would really like to be able to replace this phone with my own money.

I thought the artwork looked pretty cool so I took a  photo.
