If it wasn’t for the systematic traffic jams on the way back, Yamanashi would be the perfect place to spend all my weekends ! PS: Yes, it’s Fujisan in the background.
Asamushi Onsen (浅虫温泉) is a little but lovely hot spring located in Aomori, Japan. It was developed as the downtown beside the onsen town and is sometimes known as “Atami in Tohoku” after the famous Atami Onsen in mid-Japan.
A few of the thousands of lanterns lit up for the Mitama Matsuri in Tokyo !
The traditional sign depicting the entrance of a onsen / bath house.
Late evening at the Mitama Matsuri in Tokyo. Took the wrong lens with me : way too crowded for the 135mm to be really useful.
If you don’t care about getting wet and if your material can withstand humidity, the rainy season also offers nice photographic opportunities.
Short stroll under the rain at night.
Subway leaving the station.
Always clean !
Increasing my “commuting/transportation” collection on Getty. Why shot from the back ? Simply because they do not require a model release :)
Commuting underground : from Yurakucho to Hibiya station in Tokyo.
Couple in Kusatsu Onsen, heading for a hot bath !
A very relaxing posture on a rainy day I presume :)
One of the few Shrines that survived the WWII bombing, the Kanda Myojin has existed in its current form since 1934 (when it was rebuilt after being burned down by the fires of the Great Kanto Earthquake). Kanda Myojin enshrines three deities: Daikokuten – the god of good harvest and matrimony, Ebisu – the god […]

The typical “socks” of a Japanese construction worker, seen emerging from the windows of a van : relaxing lunch break !
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
