Top Readers’ Photos In Japan: May 2020

Stop and appreciate the simple things.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Japan was under a state of emergency until late May. Almost overnight, cities all around the country became practical ghost towns.

Since many readers weren’t doing much traveling, we decided this month to focus on the simple yet intriguing patterns of Japan’s streets—they’re easier to appreciate (and photograph) with fewer people.

Every month, we select our favorite travel images from readers. Tag your photo on Instagram with #GaijinPotTravel for a chance to be featured on our site!
