Really cool “Ladies! Join the fire brigade!”-poster seen in Roppongi, Tokyo.
Artist at Yoyogi Park
I had been in Yoyogi park for a Hanami party and on the way out near the gates I came across this guy. He had some sort of gettoblaster/turtable deck hanging over his shoulder that he used to create beats. Then he painted or carved or whatever to the music he made and then sold the art to the spectators afterwards. Gotta love Yoyogi park.
I almost missed Studio Ghibli because I spent 20 minutes watching the guy…
The Quiet Japan
My flatmate came to visit and we decided to go to Nikko to see the temples and shrines. Anywho: We also went up lake Chuzenji to hike. While it didn’t prove to be much of physical challenge and the rain was pouring down, it did look a lot better in the pictures than in real life.
Still not entirely sure what this is. But I’m pretty certain his headgear is made out of an old Japanese NES or SNES…
After 14 days of cup noodles I decided I’d had enough of the local cuisine and started a diet of burgers for about a month. And after that it’s largely been deep fried stuff, rice and white bread. “What about vegetables?”, say you? There will BE a time for vegetables but this is not it. 600 yen for 2 tomatoes? Forget it
The bamboo groves of Arashiyama a little west of Kyoto.
If you like it, you can google “bamboo grove arashiyama” wich will present you with a shit load of pictures by people far more talented and experienced with photoshop than me. People that know how to post-process a photo and not just up the saturation. People who would have waited patiently for the couple in orange and red to come closer to make it a better picture. Anyhwo: nice place and i’m pretty happy with the picture.
