I read today that this year has been Japan's second-worst in modern times in terms of direct typhoon hits, and the season isn't even half over yet. It certainly feels like there have been more windy, rainy and cloudy days than sunny ones, and admittedly, that's been kind of a drag.
But the days with even just a little blue sky and sunshine have been so memorable that they've almost made up for the rest. September and October are my favorite months for SUP in Japan, and even this year has been no exception to that.
One particularly great thing about autumn in Japan is that it brings with it some of the most stunning sunsets. I took all of the photos shown here during some of the few truly gorgeous days we've had this month.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes even a thousand pictures can't convey the depth of beauty in a single moment. So don't take my word for it—get out there and chase some sunsets yourself. Namaste!
