Alex T. Thomas and Kathryn Bingham are photographers, friends and Tokyo residents who have been studying the language and exploring Japan for the past four years. They're interested in relics of the country's ancient past, exquisite Showa-era bathhouses called sentōs, elaborately-appointed roadside rest stops and everything in between.

On a recent trip from bustling Tokyo to the peaceful riverside town of Gujo Hachiman, the pair each brought along the Canon EOS M50. Take a look at the hidden gems they encountered along the way.
