The Sun's Origin
I am one of the lucky few. I travel with my muse and together, we watched and photographed as the sun rose from under us and the North Star disappears.
Also known as The Land of the Rising Sun. Both Nippon and Nihon literally mean 'The Sun's Origin'.
Somewhere over the Pacific Sea, 0623 hrs local time, 2.5 hours bound for Kansai International Airport, Japan.
