I am not a fan of bugs although my boys love Japanese beetles. In my opinion, Japanese beetles and spiders are pretty nasty looking creatures. On my recent trip to Tochigi Japan I snapped a few photos from around the Otawara neighborhood.
Here are two Japanese beetles that my son collected. We let them go in the park before we returned to America.
This is an extremely nasty looking spider. It's web spanned a small road (about 7 feet or 2 meters wide). The web was just high enough for a small car to go under or if I walked in the middle of the road but had not been paying attention and walked along the side of the road I would have gotten a face full of the web below. Frightening.
This is a pretty cool looking dragonfly that let me get really close.
