Scary encounter for the new year. So, man or woman?

First walk in Tokyo with my new toy: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
Cold weather and snow are about to turn Onsens into something even more enjoyable than usual !
Just a minion taking a train in Tokyo for Halloween…
If you like Oysters, head for the Grand Central Oyster bar in Shinagawa !
