Japanese Aesthetics on Display

I just thought these images captured by Jeremy Hadley of the excellent Antipixel blog too beautiful not to share.

And how do you like the following image,
Antipixel - Autumn in Gotokuji
from a post describing a visit to Tokyo's Gotokuji temple?

There's something I find deeply appealing about the Japanese aesthetic sensibility, and it is a pity that most Westerners don't get to learn more about this aspect of Japan. There's a lot more to the country's cultural life than video games and anime.
