Top 10 Readers’ Photos: April

This month is all about contrasts; the color of spring vs the monochrome of the city, the fleeting nature of sakura opposed to the timelessness of national landmarks. Through all of it, a love of Japan.

Every month, we’re selecting our favorite travel images from readers. Tag your photo on Instagram or Twitter with #gaijinpottravel for a chance to be featured on our site.
