    Ah, good to know, thanks! Hope it is decent, though I am sure thereís a few members here who could top it given the time and interest. Sigma should let this be the last Hakone release for the sale of their own dignity. Kind of surprised that they have not ripped off the August 6th recording yet. As far as I can tell, itís just the Empresses Valley version floating around out there.

    It's the standard version without the mega jacket.

    Thank you very much for the link. Looks like a well packaged release.

    Yes, it is indeed. I myself have the version with the mega jacket.

    The only shortcoming of the artwork in my opinion are the colours. The mega jacket, the gatefold cover, the CD pockets, all have a different colour cast, i.e. the blue sky above the cow is different in each print.

    The print quality itself is excellent, but I would have expected more from the Japanese regarding the colours.

    But that's probably complaining at a high level.

    Can you post a picture of the mega jacket? I ordered the link shuffle provided for mega jacket but not sure that's what I received, unless the mega jacket is the 24x24 cm photo?? If so, not what I was expecting but I'm very happy with it regardless.

    I'm glad I passed on the mega jacket version (some folks have been disappointed with it) and opted for the one with the bonus postcard from Hakone.

    A beautiful package that's a bit overpriced.

    Yes, it's the 24 x 24 cm photo.

    Would you be so kind as to share a scan of the postcard? Curious to see it.

    Hi! I've ordered the disc and book from CD Japan (Amazon.Jp banned me for card issues), for shipment to Chile: both arrived the same day, but the book was delivered to me the next day; was my only alternative since Japan post suspended shipments to Chile in the middle of July. I had customs charges, because FedEx shipments do not allow the "gift" appellation, but the taxes were worth it. The book contains photos that I had not seen published before, but I feel that there are a lot more to be published (on the last page, there are images of negatives where other photos appear). Last year, I tried eBay to buy a book published in 2011, which contained photos that are not in this book, as far as I remember, but I had the same problem with Japan Post, so I had to cancel the order.
    The BluRay is simply of superior quality, and I will always be grateful to the Japanese for the dedication they give to their editions.

    P.S. Sorry for my English, but it's still very poor, so I had to use a translator. Greetings.
