MENLO PARK, Calif. -- The Portola Art Gallery presents â€œJapan Revisitedâ€ -- photographs by Frances Freyberg.
The vibrant color photographs feature landscapes, cityscapes, shrine scenes and portraits from Freybergâ€™s travels through Japan. Highlights include a pathway through thousands of red torii (shrine gates) leading to the top of Kyotoâ€™s Mt. Inari-san; a river of irises in Kanazawaâ€™s Kenroku-en garden; a bride and groom in traditional wedding costumes; and the charming post town of Narai, along the historic Nakasendo Highway.
In addition to signed and framed photographs, there will also be a variety of photo cards for sale.
