Ramen time in Tokyo.
The Tokyo Motor Show used to be a lot more populated by booth babes… And with cars being locked during public days, the reasons to go there are now very slim !
Just a minion taking a train in Tokyo for Halloween…
From the Tokyo Motor Show: Honda Grom Scrambler Concept – Love it !
If you like Oysters, head for the Grand Central Oyster bar in Shinagawa !

My B&W 805s were getting 10 years old so before they lost all their value, I sold them and got a pair of Focal Aria with Flax speakers. Truly impressed by the result ! They deserve all the positive reviews they got.
Evening stroll in the Golden Gai area in Shinjuku.
Daytime long exposure in Shinjuku Station with an ND1000 filter.

A lovely evening at the tip of the Miura Peninsula in the Jogashima Park.
Fresh seafood in the Miura Peninsula, south of Tokyo.
At Starbucks, not for me though…
Despite getting up at 5:00, an horrendous traffic jam prevented me from reaching the Fuji Shibazakura Matsuri before the crowd and before the clouds : so just a few shots this year…
Perfect timing for a storm to come over Tokyo: good visibility + dusk !
In Iidabashi, for ~10 days every year, a lovely boat ride awaits !
Row row row your boat gently down the stream !
The magic prime in action !
Almost full bloom, just a few days more.
Omoide Yokocho (memory lane) – also known as Piss Alley – is a small network of alleyways along the tracks of Shinjuku Station. The narrow lanes are filled with dozens of tiny eateries serving ramen, soba, sushi, yakitori… Past heaven for salary men, it now mostly consists of Chinese staff serving food for tourists.
Soon a decade in Japan so I thought it would be time to try gathering my best pictures somewhere and perhaps publish a book. This is going to be a long project given the few 10,000’s of pictures I need to go through… But anyway, first step, instagram : https://instagram.com/japan_pictorial/
Crazy amount of snow in Shiga-Kogen. Above 1m of snowfall overnight. Had a lot of “fun” digging the car out !
The roof of Meji Jingu in Tokyo: beautiful architecture.
Beautiful Sunset from my favourite observation platform in Tokyo ! Interesting how Mt. Fuji appears in the background as the sun moves.
Coming of Age : when Japanese girls turn 20 !
