Kurashiki - 倉敷

Updated: Mar 30, 2018

Kurashiki (倉敷) is located in Okayama Prefecture , not far from the prefectural capital of Okayama City. Kurashiki has a preserved canal area that dates back to the Edo Period (1603-1867), when the city served as an important rice distribution center. In fact, the name "Kurashiki" can be roughly translated as "town of storehouses", which refers to the storehouses in which the rice was kept.

I used a 20-second exposure with this shot, long enough to get the light trails of a car that passed on the left.
