Tom Stockwell is a 27-year-old British teacher and traveler living in Taipei, Taiwan who writes a site about his travels called ‘Waegook Tom’. He explains:
Waegook – the Korean word for “foreign”. So, basically, Waegook Tom is “foreign Tom”.
Tom has been traveling around Japan for the past week and delivering some eye-opening images of its landscapes, its cities, and its food, touching down in Tokyo, and continuing on to Osaka and Kyoto.
Tom writes of the photo below: “One of the most famous places in #Kyoto is the bamboo forest, a lovely place to have a stroll and escape the city.”
He’s also a really excellent food photographer.
