Rush hour in the evening in Shinjuku.
I knew it would be a painful morning so to lighten the mood, I took my 135mm along. One shot made my day, can you guess which one ?
Young Japanese lady enjoying a nice Sunday at Shinjuku Gyoen.
On a sunny day in Shinjuku Gyoen : plenty of old women drawing while their male counter-parts are more inclined to practise their photographic skills. My daughter favours the formers for interacting :D
Naoko with her hat on Sunday. Lovely series :)
Garlic restaurant : garlic, and a lot of it, in every dish. Good to eat, uncomfortable to digest. Gives you the ability to repel vampires attacks for a week !
A nice morning walk at Shunjuku Gyoen.
At Isetan Shinjuku in Tokyo. Not cheap, far from it, but a good selection.
Difficult to take serious photos of her when she’s aware of being photographed :-)

One of the few visible consequences of the Great Tohoku Earthquake here in Tokyo : a Japanese flag at half mast, here at the fire station close to my home.

First time in almost two weeks that no restriction was imposed at my local gas station.
Strolling around Isetan in Shinjuku I stumbled accross this rather odd sign: Burrari, which looks like a Ferrari logo but with a pig instead of a horse.
And wasabi for Udon sauce.

@ Isetan, Shinjuku.
Strolling in the middle of Tokyo, in Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.
Remember the TV series ? Well, I spotted one of their motherships hovering above Shinjuku yesterday evening !
