Spring is here all right ! :)
Last shot of the cherry blossoms for this year : a lot of rain :(
Going to Ueno for the cherry blossoms, very pretty and very crowded, as always.
A bit of water, a few cherry trees and it’s a guaranteed invasion during the Hanami season !
I have had it with these over-priced plastic toys which barely last a year (Dyson, Electrolux, …). Miele is of course very good but too expensive here in Tokyo. After checking industrial vacuum cleaners, I was surprised to see that you can find small and relatively cheap ones ! This cute little fella from Hitachi […]
Quick, a few sakura shots between two rain pours !
Just before full bloom : a storm with strong winds and lots of rain :(
Spring hasn’t quite reached Shinjuku yet !
Love those little messages on my coffee : the Thank You with the little heart, and the thank you for coming always, have a wonderful day ! The cynics will say they do not mean it… I frankly do not care, to me that’s just good service !
Slow exposure with fast train and still passengers on a platform, my favourite :)
Rejoice, for Spring has come to Tokyo !
A very common sight in Tokyo Disneyland : young girls posing everywhere !
One our favourite ride at Tokyo Disneyland : Big Thunder Mountain !
My eyes hurt ! :D
First day in Shiga Kogen, Yakebitaiyama in Nagano : beautiful weather, great tracks and plenty of snow.
The Sigma Art 35mm F1.4 DG HSM in action : shooting stairs !
It has been a while since I took some pictures while taking the train in Tokyo, so here you go :)
Not that I particularly like Starbucks but their coffee taste is consistent.
Back from Prague, and out for a walk in Shimbashi to recover from the jetlag !
Jetlag, middle of the night, bored… but with an camera :) And before you ask, the blue light comes from a ~¥220 adapter : http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B0017SBERC
Details of the nice-looking Shokudouraku (食道楽), the latest addition to the long list of restaurants in Kagurazaka. Yes, still the Sigma Art 35mm F1.4 DG HSM in action ~!
Sugamo, the Akihabara of old ladies is also known for one thing : red underwear. Reminds me of China, where read underwears are sold everywhere around the Chinese new year. Red undies are supposed to bring you luck!
Peculiar Hair Salon in Sugamo.
My very first visit to Sugamo, the Akihabara of old ladies ! At the end of Jizō-dōri, there’s a cute little temple.
I knew the place – like everyone else – but this was my very first visit. Just wanted to check if they had some Game & Watch… And yes, they do : horribly expensive !
Looking up offers a completely different sight.
Trainee at Starbucks !
New restaurant in Kagurazaka. Looks like the manager of our beloved Uomaru decided to run his own place !
Unlike the previous posts might have suggested, there are robots in the robot restaurant… in addition to the scantily clad dancers :) And no, I did have an equal interest in capturing those robots. BUT most of them were just too large to fit in my 50mm lens. Need to go back with a wider […]
From the Robot Restaurant !
