During the December of 2018 I was driving around Kuju, a beautiful national park in Oita prefecture, Japan. It was a miserable day when suddenly the sun came out in golden glory.
In 2012 an old Japanese man befriended me and took me on several mountain hiking trips. One of them was to Mt Kuju. The mountain scenery was incredible and inspired me to paint two watercolors.
On a one night summer holiday in Kuju we say a beautiful sunset. It was a wonderful sight and later at home I really enjoyed painting a picture of it.
