One of the things that Hakone is famous for is woodwork. Many of the shops are not keen on people taking pictures of their artistry, but this one was happy to show me how the process works (and provide a "free sample", pictured below). This quote from the links below describes the process better than I can:

"Yosegi-Zaiku Marquetry" is carried out according to the following process; first timbers with natural colors are collected (and sometimes colored), then they are shaved with a plane (the thin shaved tree is called juku) and made into mosaic-pattern trees. Finally the thin paper-like trees are stuck on craftwork.

How do the PERSONAL TOPs of G+ Photos Work?

1) Any photography enthusiast can create a PERSONAL TOP consisting of his/her own Google Plus photographs. This means any existing PERSONAL top has been created by the author of the photographs that are in the TOP; there are no PERSONAL TOPs that were created automatically.

2) Only G+ photographs published by you in one of your Google+ posts should appear in your PERSONAL TOP. This means any posts you have reshared or your own posts without a G+ photo should not appear. No GIFs should be in the TOPs.

3) Contrary to the DAILY TOPs are the PERSONAL TOPs sorted solely on popularity - we use Plus PopRank to sort these. The Plus PopRank formula is: Plus PopRank(of a post) = +1s + (2 x comments) + (4 x reshares)

Example: Let's say that a particular post has 25 +1s, 10 comments and 3 reshares. This means its Plus PopRank is 57 (= 25 + 2x10 + 4*3).
