A popular attraction at Toshogu Shrine is the Nemuri-neko, a carving of a sleeping cat atop a doorway that I would have missed if not for the large crowd gathered beneath it. The huge crowd prevented me from moving nearer for a closer look, but thanks to the PowerShot SX70 HS’ high optical zoom that can go up to 65x, I managed to do a zoom above everyone’s heads to get a clear shot of this National Treasure.

After a short bus ride that zig-zagged up and down a mountain, I arrived at Chuzenji Onsen, a serene hot spring town situated by a lake. The wide zoom range of the PowerShot SX70 HS, which boasts the widest angle in its class at approximately 21mm, proved handy in capturing the beauty of Lake Chuzenji in its entirety.
