The Sprawling "City" of Ono.
How Ono ever got city status will always be a mystery to me. Despite claiming to have 40,000 inhabitants, I have never seen more than 6 people together at any one time outside of school. It's a sprawling metropolis of rice. The nightlife is limited to a handful of tiny bars or the dreaded karaoke booths.
One thing Ono does have going for it though is its unique positioning. It is one of the few cities in Japan (the world?) that is completely encircled by mountains. 360 degrees of peaks can lead to some nice sunsets - these two shots are from my balcony.
