Photographer's Note

In those years a trip to Nikko took a long time, and a visitor should consider at least the whole day, I remember I had to change a train at Utsinomiya, and the weather was rainy on that day. Nevertheless I decided to go on and hope for the best. Today with digitals it is much easier to take pictures in dark places, but in 1957 with a 100 ASA film a photographer risked some blur.
But finally I was in NIKKO and I had reached THE place I wished to visit so much.The gold seemed ever more brilliant when wet. The visitors were mostly japanese groups, today such a sight with hats so popular in the 50's would be unthinkable.

This picture is perhaps a prelude of what I would be trying to do 50 years later, combining visitors and art in Museums.
